I spent most of my school years, fourth grade through the second year of college living in California and this week I am home…close…Pasadena is not Fresno. (And many people who have been to both say "thank God.") Being near the Rose Bowl is not like being near the raisin capital of the world. But it is good to be back in California for a visit. The temperature today was in the 80’s, there is very low humidity and I step outside the conference I am attending and look at mountains rising up fromnothing.
This will not last for long, for soon I will be returning to the home I have happily adopted...Tennessee.
