I'm back with more from my Look Up series. This one is from the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland, CA. On Saturday, December 28, 2019, my husband and I rented a car and a spot near Guerneville to get away. 
Our first stop was in Oakland, so my hubby could get a haircut. We swung by Chapel of the Chimes because we both embrace our mortality and wanted a bit of quiet introspection before heading into the redwoods. 
This is as far as we made it. After this brief jaunt, I lost the rental car car key. It was a very big bummer. We didn't make it to Guerneville or the redwoods. In fact, I had to wait for about eight hours in Oakland to get a replacement key. 
It could have been a disaster. It wasn't. 
Instead, it was a lesson in letting go completely. There wasn't anything we could do except wait. And wait. And wait. 
Looking back, these photos represent a waiting. A view into what is possible just beyond the glass. They reflect what was and what is. They are portals to an unknown. They anticipate what's next while being present in the now. 
I'm curious, How do you let things just be? How do you let go?
