California Dreamin’

Sunshine, blue skies, humming birds and butterflies. 

Indulging in my favourite face products (yes I’m addicted but I can only get them here), catching up with friends and remembering my other life. It was a day spent mostly in Venice, cycling to Abbot Kinney, GTA for brunch and there I was, back again. It’s only been three and a half years since I left, in some ways it seems like yesterday and in others, a lifetime.
This doesn’t really make sense but in the words of Neil Diamond, whom I hold in high esteem and have done since I used to listen to Beautiful Noise when I was about seven…

L.A.’s fine, the sun shines most the time

And the feeling is “lay back”

Palm trees grow and rents are low

But you know I keep thinkin’ about

Making my way back

Well I’m New York City born and raised

But nowadays,

I’m lost between two shores

L.A.’s fine, but it ain’t home

New York’s home,

But it ain’t mine no more
The gist being that LA ain’t mine no more but it’s nice to visit and it’s great to see friends.
Then again, Neil didn’t have social media when he wrote that song and how lucky, I always feel like I know what’s going on!
