How to Survive November 2022 -3

California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day ( a gray November day)

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is gray
I’ve been for a walk
On a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm
If I was in L.A. (San Diego)

California dreamin’ (
On such a winter’s day (November day)

This song, the sentiments are what I have during the winter months, to be anywhere warn and sunny. I lived in San Diego years back in 1990’s and I remember warmly the even temperatures during all year round. These photo I scanned from the paper photos. I don’t know if I would want to live in the states anymore, but back then I enjoyed it. The weather there in California sounds like a dream, at least during winter months , certainly worth dreaming about.

The obvious choice could have been The Mamas & the Papas – California Dreamin’ or The Beach Boys – California Dreamin’ Instead, I chose this version. Let’s dream, even if i know I won’t go.

Thanks PARALLEL LINES |in scale for hosting How to Survive November once again.

At the ‘How to Survive November‘ monthly theme we will combine photo and sound. You can select a piece of music to your taste and find a photo to portray the song or you can make a drawing, painting or collage. The picture can be from your archives or you can get it fresh. Enjoy and have fun!

  1. I love that song since I heard it first in the early 1980s. Just like many others of The Mamas and The Papas. They are so uniquely arranged and recorded.
    Your images are fitting perfectly to illustrate the song.
    Wishing all the best for coping with your winter depression .
