July 16, 2012. We're up in Castro Valley, hunting for a nest. The top sketch I did the other afternoon on Blackstone before we left, and the lower sketch shows the view out the window where we are staying this week at a pastor's house. He is very generous to put us up in his guesthouse, and we love the surrounding hills in this area. Hopefully in the next couple days we'll be able to land on a place to call home for this next chapter of our lives. Other than finding a home, we've found scores of new friends already and love the people I'll be working with. God is good.
