Life in the Oasis

California Tale

1 Comment

My blogs over the next few days are scheduled to be on the light side, such as little peeks into my daily life as 2017 rolls to a close, a few excerpts from a book I’m writing about my travel anecdotes, some general thoughts on general topics, and a few book reviews. I will respond to comments and emails, but please bear with me as I might not get to my laptop posthaste.

In my lifetime so far, I probably made about nine trips to California. The topography and the vegetation in the state are remarkable. What surprised me was how damp and chilly it can get in the springtime, and once I caught a respiratory infection there because of that. Who would’ve thought?

That same trip, I attended a party, and all the Hollywood-like stereotypes were out in full regalia. It was just how imagined Hollywood to be: People air kissing upon meeting. Bragging about vacations. Waving jewel-laden hands in front of your face. Phony conversations. Even phonier laughs. One trying to out-do the other. But, then, that could be a party anywhere, I suppose, given the right combination of personalities.

It was one whacky, eye-opening excursion, out of many I made to La La Land.

Currently, I am working on a book of my travel experiences, of the whacky places I visited, and the zany people I met along the way. I’ll be sharing a few excerpts here on my blog. I expect the book to be finished summer of 2018.
