Start in Cleveland, finish in Del Mar

Yesterday I woke up in Cleveland to complete darkness and an ambient outside temperature of 8 degrees Fahrenheit. Last night I went to bed in Del Mar to light ocean breezes with an 8x increase of the thermometer reading.

It took less than a full workday for me to make my way across three time zones from weather misery to climate paradise.

My fortunate position as an independent artist bestows blessings like this with a frequency that still amazes me.

I try never to take this luxury posing as work for granted.
