The journey begins

I’m on the road right now, and for the next little bit this site will be transformed into a travel journal. I know you’re busy so I’ll try to boil things down to only the most salient observations. For example, this first one, I think you’ll agree, is almost entirely salient.
Leaving town yesterday afternoon, I saw a sign in the international terminal at San Francisco Airport. It read: “Gourmet Chocolate Lollipops: A California Tradition.”
Adding avocado to our sushi, that’s a California Tradition. We also like panning for gold and hypnotizing each other. Sometimes we tame wild grizzlies and ride them around our 1200-square-foot bungalows shouting “Hyah, little pony! Hyah!” These are all legitimate California Traditions.
But gourmet chocolate lollipops?
