California

Like so many in my situation, I never meant to live in California, I just drifted out here doing something else and here I still am, fifteen or more years later. I've always accidentally lived in places that are deeply symbolic of something, whether it's culture or distance (or bad weather), but California's the ultimate symbol of nearly everything, including nothing. It's the ultimate blank metaphor...
