Sometimes I wonder why I live in Southern California. I am city guy. I grew up in Chicago, lived in NYC and ever since I moved to L.A. I have felt it's a sprawling, vast suburb and I am not sure how I fit in. I have been here for years and still feel like I'm visiting. Don't get me wrong, there are so many things that I have come to appreciate about my new home and would miss if I were gone from the sunny L.A. area, but I become homesick for a concentrated city that has an energy, buzz and sometimes so architecturally packed that it blocks out the sun.....UNTIL, those days I get to come home before the sun goes down and I watch it drift through my house in a glowing, sweeping way. It almost feels like it's sauntering through the rooms. Southern California light, there's nothing quite like it.
