Was to keep on keepin’ on
Like a bird that flew"

"All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."

Goodbye to All That

"It is easy to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see the ends. I can remember now, with a clarity that makes the nerves in the back of my neck constrict, when New York began for me, but I cannot lay my  finger upon the moment it ended, can never cut through the ambiguities and second starts and broken resolves to the exact place on the page where the heroine is no longer as optimistic as she once was."

I think I’m going back to California
Somewhere distant and it’s all far away
It’s so far, it’s so far far away

I think I’ll drift across the ocean now
Clouds look so clear in your eyes
Let me dream all my, let me dream all my friends

I think I’ll fly across the ocean
I can watch the sky turning grey
I think I’m going back, I think I’ll go back

I think I hear the whisper of my own best friend
I think I hear the bells ringing in the square
California, California
