Tonight I find myself caught somewhere in between the gracious challenges of 20th Century England at Downton Abbey and the paradise that is modern Hawaii Life. Both cultures pull at me so. I love the clothes, the sensibilities, the elegance of English aristocracy. But I would probably find life on Maui to be a much more comfortable “fit” for my life in the here and now.
Since life at Downton no longer exists, and a move to Hawaii isn’t even on my radar screen, I shall continue enjoying the contentment of day-to-day life in Central California, sharing a home with two precious girls, their parents, and the world’s best dog.
But I can dream, can’t I?
