H- Herds of Cali


Block by palm tree block
I keep walking, expecting  
to find the end where the
crowds lessen, but it does
not stop continuously 
blending as one multi-
plying infrastructure 
dotting every morsel of
sand on this edge. I turn 
east hoping for a place of 
few people, a quiet nook 
for a moment to breath. 
Only to learn people are 
everywhere in this land 
of sun.

Funny how we writers are always looking for that quiet place, a moment of solitude. I've also found that people watching (and overhearing) is a good way to appease the muse when you can't get away.

Nice lil' piece of written in almost internal-monologue style, or perhaps stream of consciousness I should say. It flows from top to bottom.

Warmest Salad my friend, been a while, huh?

My experience of Southern California. The first time in my life I felt claustrophobic. (I have to have MRI's and have been to New York)
Thank you and

could just as easily be south Florida...that's how I feel when I visit my parents...no space, just palm trees, concrete and people.

Great post! If you want less crowds of people come to Montana - land of winter year round.

Nicely expressed. Why I left California, beautiful as it is, and it is beautiful, like every beauty around, it attracts every eye, and every body.

I agree with Sherri but Wyoming's even better. Come to Wyoming.
