A new season and a change of weather. No cold/snowy winter for me and my furry companion this year. California is our official destination and new home. I’m particularly interested in Northern California, since a few of my close friends and family live there. So I’m putting out the word for everyone — especially my Sunday Is For Lovers readers… If you know of a rental that is available, please let me know! (I’m looking for a house share or a small individual unit, like a studio or 1 bedroom. It all depends on the location and space.) Also, if you know of Northern California towns I should explore or focus my search on, I’d love to have your suggestions about that as well. It’s been 20 years since I lived in California, so I have really lost touch (and memory) of the Golden State’s cities and off-the-beaten-path landscape. I’m looking for something that feels ‘small town’, or something a little green. I don’t want to move to the heart of San Francisco, or anywhere that’s too similar to what I left in New York City. I’m not looking for nightlife, excitement and pavement. I’m looking for something a little in-between earthy laid-back energy and creative city life. But like I mentioned before, it all depends on the location, arrangement and space. Please let me know if you know of anything, or have any helpful tips for me. I’m grateful to hear/read whatever feedback you might have.

I’m going to share with you several videos I’ve watched several times. Each time I watch them I am absolutely speechless at the truth and insight they share. They don’t share a popular view or common perspective, so I’m not sure as to what percentage of the population will be able to see their value. When I come across videos like these, it’s like finding a glass of cool, clean, drinking water, after forgetting how thirsty I’ve been. It’s humbling. And it’s a sobering reminder of what really matters to me. I often forget, because I get lost in the maze of consumerism and manipulative mass culture. I don’t get lost in it wildly, but just enough to lose sight of what’s most important.
Below is an interview with Jon Butler (in two parts) and another with John P. Milton. They come from vastly different backgrounds, but are essentially saying the same thing.
“In order to be who we are, we have to come out of what we are not.” … “Timeless, spaceless, indescribable pure being; being oneself. I Am. That’s what it’s all about, discovering oneself. Discovering what we are. And when we discover what we are, we can begin to be of use.” -John Butler
