The energy in New York is like a jolt of electricity, whereas here it's more like a soft, steady breeze. I heard once that people can be put into two categories: In the depths of your heart, you're either a New York person or a California person. As if three thousand miles of in-between material for constructing a personality don't exist. But now I understand what it means. It's about the environment that feeds your lifeblood, which kind of energy makes you feel alive and which kind makes you feel sedated.-- pg 111-112
QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19
First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.
