(july) on the west coast

There is some sensory magic that is mesmerizing on the West Coast. The air really is cleaner and clearer, and you can tell the fern and fauna are generally existing better than our obese squirrels and blackened pigeons in Philadelphia. Every place we stopped had the smell of fresh flowers or clean sheets and cotton whenever you inhaled deeply. It will continue to bother me that sarcasm is not well accepted and that most places don't take Discover, but I would trade those things for a 4-foot-tall succulent in my yard.
