California Dreaming

California Dreaming

i use to zone out on this song way before i had ever set foot in California. i remember how big and fast it all was those first few years, 36 years ago. 21 years young. there had to be times when i thought i wouldn’t make it, times wh hien i strongly considered moving back “home” but i can no longer remember any of them. 3 months out of small town high school to the state capital for 2 years of tech training to get a technician’s diploma that i would take to pasadena a few months later. a one way greyhound bus ticket to stay with family and folks i grew up with that were already out here. by no means did i do it alone, but i freakin’ made it happen. the moments i stop to cherish where i am and celebrate where i’ve been while remembering the times and people of where i came from and those who assisted in getting me to such a wonderful now…

sometimes i ponder the places and things that i am capable of going and accomplishing and i get dizzy from excitement
