Split personality

This is the first beach I came to when I moved to Santa Cruz from the high desert. I remember sitting at Aldo's, a rickety restaurant overlooking the harbor, thinking, oh, am I the luckiest person in the world to be moving right here!

Three decades later I take my morning walk, the December sun glimmering off the sea and I'm thinking of the desert with such hunger and wondering why I can't be in both places at the same time.

I think this must be one of the premiere defining characteristics of being human.
