You never know what will happen when you set about to create something, at least I don't. I often have a rough idea. Sometimes, I even have a plan, but who knows if the end will be anything like what's envisioned at the beginning? It's kind of like a road trip (Ha, ha, wow, what a creative analogy!). There's a route, okay, but the story might be centered in its deviation.
At the moment, I have some essays in mind. For instance, I'll be writing a piece on cemeteries, also known as America's early parks. Last week, I hiked up to Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland to take photos and think. It was actually designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted, the person who designed Central Park in New York.

Hey dude, totally, sincerely, thanks for the lake and the college and stuff!
I'll get there and to it! But for now, expect more but shorter updates from the road.
For now, enjoy this lovely piece of public art:
