Elsewhere, California

It was the windiest day I can remember us having.

Where are those answers Bob Dylan sang about? As it blew my door nearly off the hinges, the only answer I heard was, “Better lock it to keep it shut when it picks up again.”
We haven’t had a lick of rain this year and the drought marches on. Are they going to have to start trucking water in? This is crazy, California is in trouble. We have wind …

I’m not a conspiracy theorist.

Sometimes I think we all choose to live elsewhere in our minds, ignoring things.

My views on films and life are usually headstrong and often 'left of center' on movies and life, but I have respect for the other side. I married my high-desert princess (now my queen).
