To have a reason to get up in the morning, it is necessary to possess a guiding principle. A belief of some kind. A bumper sticker, if you will.
The opening lines of ORDINARY PEOPLE
by Judith Guest
Today I talked to an old friend and she said, “What’s so great about California, I mean, besides the weather?” And about an hour later I pulled up behind this truck. Flower stickers. Disappear Fear in a rainbow. Guitars not Bombs. Coastal Canine Magazine. Pro Choice. Funkengruven. The COEXIST sign. The world as seen from outer space. The Zodiac. A blue heart.
This, I thought. This is what I love about California, that I can pull up behind this guy and his happy bumper stickers.
What do you love about where you live?
