My first year in San Diego I took a literature course at the University of San Diego called “California Dreams”. The basic thesis of the course was that since the gold rush of 1848 California has always been a shared destination for dreams. Even today you see this play out. Aspiring actors come from around the country to Hollywood, Overworked bankers move west to learn to surf, soggy loggers move south to get a sun tan and the entire world has at one time invariably dreamed of a new life in California. We all know it’s true because we are all living proof of that fact. I am here for all the same reasons myself.
So when Catherine and Ken sought to head out west from Georgetown I knew we already had a lot in common. We searched together for nearly 2 years to find a home for that dream and just this past week it happened. It was nothing short of poetic irony when they bought a home built not too long after that Gold Rush began. So, as they spend their first weekend together in their 1900s home in North Mission Hills, they have become a part of this 200-year-old chain of shared aspirations we call the California Dream. Congratulations Ken and Catherine, I hope this weekend is one for the history books!
