Carnivore/Keto Dreams – California

balboa

This was my view out my window for three years and more on Balboa Peninsula. Near Newport Beach.  Back then there were beach houses on the beach and we could live there with a roommate or two.  Now they’ve all been demolished and only rich people live on the beach.

Sometimes I feel homesick to the point I ache.  But then I don’t.  Joan Didion was born and raised there and nobody captures California like she does.  The last continent.  Where all dreamers go to die, eh?

“The apparent ease of California life is an illusion, and those who believe the illusion real live here in only the most temporary way.” Joan Didion

“California is a place in which a boom mentality and a sense of Chekhovian loss meet in uneasy suspension; in which the mind is troubled by some buried but ineradicable suspicion that things better work here, because here, beneath the immense bleached sky ,is where we run out of continent.”
― Joan Didion
Food:  I’m on the road today, heading downstate for appointments so it will likely be bunless burgers and coffee with half n half.
Dreams:  Hm, don’t remember them again.  Didn’t sleep the best.
Happy Sunday, all.
