Pictured above is the stair case that goes to the various levels of the newest public parking building in the Funk Zone of Santa Barbara. Yes, there is an elevator for those that are handicapped, however, we prefer the stairs.
The public lots around town always have landscaping of some kind depending on their location. In this instance, these big pots of bougainvillea are it. One of the lots we often use has specimen trees. It has several cork trees, the kind that corks used in bottling.
Both of us love words, and that is why I titled the post quintessential. The right word can convey the emotions of a moment, better than a similar word that almost says it perfectly. If you walk up stairs in our city's parking lot you will see different tile work. Some are more colorful than others, but they are all interesting.
Quintessential is one of these words. Merriam-Webster defines it as: Quintessential definition is - perfectly typical or representative of a particular kind of person or thing : being a quintessence.
Quintessence is what we strive for in creating a brand for an individual or company. And when we get there, it is a thrilling moment for us and our clients. It is a high that never grows old. For both of us, this photo represents one of the many aspects of Santa Barbara County.
We have lived here over 12 years, and are delighted every time a quintessential element appears. It resonates with us and reminds us to appreciate every moment!
