California

Today while surfing, I had the profile of Catalina on the horizon in front of me, the snow-covered San Gabriels behind me, a crisply outlined downtown Long Beach to my right (with the cougar-inhabited Santa Monica Mtns faintly outlined behind it), the Palos Verdes Peninsula to its left, terns dive bombing hither and thither for little fish, a sailboat thataway, HB pier to my left a couple of miles east, and the wind coming offshore, reversing the approach patterns of planes landing at LB Airport. Life can be all right.
