A mountain lion killed a deer a couple of days ago on a trail I ride. I came up just after it happened. Not predators, but I do see Rattlers all the time.
Finally moved away from CA to southern OR in 2020. Midwest to So Cal to NorCal (Oakland) back to So Cal (Santa Barbara) and now OR. The 22 yrs I lived in the Bay was the most gratifying as an adult. I still think of Oakland as home.
Oregon is beautiful though. It was the only place I could see myself going if I ever left CA. I didn't think that would ever happen, but here I am.
Headed to Cupertina soon to Apple to install some hush hush new gear to beta test. Looking forward to it.
Lake Oswego, OR drew me out of California, at the age of 43, after over four decades in the Golden State. Beautiful geography, in Oregon. And Washington State geography is every bit as beautiful - perhaps more-so.
Sometimes I think all of us have nostalgia for a certain place, but perhaps we really have a nostalgia for a certain time… Regardless thank you for your fabulous story
Been here all my life. I count myself fortunate.
One of my favorite Dead songs:
There's a lot around here!
Yes. So true.
Time most definitely has a LOT to do with it; time in our lives... and as no place remains the same (especially when people are involved) - over time.
My favorite Doors Song. Somehow my stereo gets turned way up whenever it comes on.
Indeed... an awesome song and made especially enjoyable with the images in that particular video!
California, the place, was truly one of the earth's most magnificent gifts to man. How man has treated it is another matter.
I grew up in the East Bay (Pleasant Hill), but came south to go to UCLA and I've been in Los Angeles for... going on 35 years (shoot me, please). My mother lived in Lake Wildwood outside of Grass Valley until her husband died in December 2017 and I moved her down to an apartment in Burbank, where she lives like a born-again teenager. My brother now lives in my grandparents' old house in Sacramento. I occasionally drive my mother up to meet my aunt and uncle in Colfax, in the foothills of the Sierras, where my aunt owns some of my grandparents' former property and runs a funky nonprofit called the Colfax Historical Society. But it's safe to say that I'll spend the rest of my life in SoCal.
The Beach Boys' 2012 studio album "That's Why God Made the Radio" -- one of my favorite albums of the past decade -- closes with a great sequence songs about living one's twilight years in California.
