Like we talked about last week, sometimes it’s good to get a change of scenery if you need a jolt of fresh energy.
I grew up in San Diego, and for years I took it for granted that my hometown was a city that a some folks dream of living in. I had a lot of rough years here – I was mostly a mess until my mid-20s – but coming back to it now, with a lot of distance (and therapy), means I can appreciate how nice it is.
And going from tiny Taos to sprawling San Diego is a fun change. I wouldn’t want to live here full time again, but for a couple months I’m happy to take advantage of all this city has to offer.
This weekend was a good example, even though it was more packed than normal. First off – Hamilton! Yep, I managed to get tickets – last row in the mezzanine – and though I wish I could have been closer, it was fantastic. If you get a chance, see why Lin-Manuel Miranda won a MacArthur Genius Grant.
