I used to have this thing against California & Florida.
I thought of them as glorified vacation spots.
You can't live year round in a place with palm trees!
Obviously, I had a change of heart.
I actually went to California.
Right now I'm in Orlando for a conference.
|This is our hotel!|
And it's lush
and I love it.
And I said to myself,
I need to spend at least part of my life
living in a place with palm trees.
Ignoring what this humidity does to my hair, of course.
Let's not talk about that.
But then I went to a conference session
given by a sweet man from Alabama.
And I decided,
I need to spend at least part of my life in the South.
I need to live in a town called Possum Trot.
The next session was led by a women from Rhode Island.
Then, of course,
I need to spend at least part of my life in New England.
I want to be brash and intelligent.
|And maybe live near Walden Pond.|
And I want to be a hipster in the Pacific Northwest.
And a farmer in the Midwest.
And a Delaware mom who vacations at the beach
and has a smoker voice.
Not to mention how terrifying it is to think of life
without the Rockies.
