In 2008, I was driving up Highway 101 headed back to my duty station when a voice said to me, “Look left.”
I immediately obeyed, and as I did, I witnessed high waves crashing into the coast line. As I marveled at the strength of the Pacific Ocean, I then got the revelation that one day I would write a book and that my protagonist would come to this very location to seek refuge. As soon as I returned my eyes back to the road, I noticed a sign that read “Refugio State Beach.” It was then I knew my life had been changed.
Do you remember the day your life-changing moment occurred?
