I used to live in California when I was a young teenager. After I moved to the Midwest at the age of 15, I realized that most Californians are California-centric. They don’t leave California, they can’t imagine living anywhere else, and they don’t see any reason to travel to other parts of the U.S. (Stressing most Californians, not all!)
Since returning to California 10 years ago, I now actually see why Californians love California so much. Even though I love and appreciate what the rest of the U.S. and the world have to offer, I am starting to feel like I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Why?
Because California is so beautiful.
And diverse, not just in people, but also in food, language, education, and especially nature.
There is so much to do here.
California is exciting and alive. Despite all its problems, it is vibrant. It is where the action is.
Here are some glimpses of that vibrancy as seen in the colors of California.
This is just a tiny peek… Look for more photos of California in upcoming posts. In the meantime, let me know what strikes you about California.
