Los Angeles in the Rear View Mirror!


The Los Angeles experiment has come to a close! In March, 2013 I accepted a position with the U.S. Government to work in Los Angeles. The decision to move to LA without my bride was one made out of a number of considerations; beautiful home along the river, oldest daughter residing in San Francisco and our youngest attending her first year in the northern outreaches of the Golden State. ¶ The decision was also made to get my foot in the door of the government while holding out faith and promise to return to the Bay area in a reasonable amount of time. ¶ Courtesy of a phenomenal travel agent (Bonnie) and Southwest Airlines I’ve been able to return home to Sonoma County nearly every weekend over this eighty week span, only to wake up at oh-so-dark-thirty on Monday mornings for a return flight to LAX. ¶ Relationships are forged on strong foundations and with this experiment coming to a close on Friday, October 17th, and starting a new job with the government in San Francisco next week. ¶ I am very fortunate to say, the foundation itself is not only twenty-six years strong, but getting stronger daily. ¶ Lucky dude for sure. ¶ So with just one more night having to be spent alone down here in the City of Angels, and my car packed and ready to roll … I find it appropriate to use the lyrics of a hometown band, the Beach Boys to dedicate the title for this post before I put LA in the rear view mirror! ¶ Honey, see you soon. With all my thanks and all the love in my heart … ¶ I may not always love you / But long as there are stars above you / You never need to doubt it / I’ll make you so sure about it / God only knows what I’d be without you / If you should ever leave me / Though life would still go on believe me / The world could show nothing to me / So what good would living do me / God only knows what I’d be without you / (God only knows what I’d be without you) / If you should ever leave me well life would still go on believe me / The world could show nothing to me / So what good would living do me / God only knows what I’d be without you / (God only knows what I’d be without you) / God only knows / God only knows what I’d be without you / God only knows what I’d be without you / God only knows / God only knows what I’d be without you / God only knows what I’d be without you / God only knows / God only knows what I’d be without you. ¶ Keeping her close, ♥ Paul

  1. Hi Bonnie and Paul

    What wonderful awesome news. I’m not sure who I am happier for. Sounds like a win-wind. Great news and congratulations on the new job in San Francisco!
