I mean it's ridiculous, that I got to come to San Diego, stay in a gorgeous hotel, meet and get to know a bunch of other Fragile X moms and dad and grandparents, and gain and share information from Seaside Therapeutics, a company that is working to improve the lives of people with autism, Fragile X, and other neurological disorders.
Did I mention it's gorgeous in San Diego? For about the first 24 hours I was here I couldn't wipe the silly, tickled grin off my face. I can't even wrap my head around the fact that I got to stay in a place where palm trees just grow right in the ground.
Okay I've been in places where palm trees grow right in the ground before. I've been to Texas a few (dozen) times, and I've been to Mexico and the Dominican Republic. They were all exotic vacation paradises.
So I guess, palm trees signify exotic vacation paradises to me. I'm sure it's orchestrated that way. They plant the palms all over the hotel landscapes and along the highways to and from the airport, so those of us from colder climates will feel like we're in paradise. I'm sure it's a conspiracy.
It worked on me.
|Ditto for giant cacti. They make a good icon for exotic paradises too.|
There are more pictures and plenty more to say, but right now I have to close and get packed up.
To be continued.....
