Why have I settled here, you might ask. The answer to that question is simple. Have you ever been to Hawaii? I have, many times. I love the place. The climate is perfect, it’s beautiful, and if you live at the beach there, as I do here, there is no need for doors or windows other than for security reasons. Actually, I would have done in Hawaii what I did here but for one reason… Hawaii is simply out of my budget. I remember the very first time I went to Hawaii. I loved the temperature, the fresh air (you can’t see it like in California), the humidity level, and the breezes and when I got to the hotel and walked up to the reception desk I was stunned! I realized I had not walked through a doorway! The reception area was completely open to the outside. I said to the clerk “you mean the temperature never changes enough to need walls?”
He gave me this look like “good grief, another stupid tourist” but kind of grunted a confirmation. That was when this raised in Alaska guy knew he had finally found home. When you’re a kid in Alaska, during the winter, you might sometimes pray that when you die you’ll go to hell so you can be warm… yes I actually did that! Even southern California, where I lived for many years after I escaped from Alaska at 16, is sometimes not warm enough.
