When you go to California….

· Music

A friend on a mailing list, writing to another friend who’s contemplating a move, passed along this wonderful quotation:

Someone had mentioned an analogy that had begun to prey on my mind. Going to California, he had said, was like entering a swimming-pool. It was pleasant, you swam a few laps, and before you knew it, you were fifty years old.

– Vikram Seth, Two Lives
