we spent a week in southern california last month. i mentioned that, yes? after nearly a decade of living in new york and stealing back for visits, i think we've let our agenda boil down to its most essential bits. dank, old bars; bright, fresh tacos; as much time with the pacific and my family as possible. a bonfire that gives your clothes a stink you have to name. simmer for ten years and the very best persists.

It smells? Southern California smells? Things I did not know. Glad you got home, glad you went back home after that.

There is something magical about the essence. Sounds like you've got it down, unsurprisingly.
