As a kid growing up in rainy Seattle, I learned to always take advantage of the sun when it shined. In fact, I can still remember my mother admonishing me to "not waste the sunshine" if I was indoors on a rare sunny day. And even though I've now lived in California for over two decades, I still feel guilty if I'm not taking advantage of every sunny day. But, since it's sunny pretty much every day (at least from, say, April through October), it's no longer rational to harbor that guilt.
So a while back I wrote this song, in which I tried to capture my ambivalent feelings about living in the great, goofy, frustrating and sunny state of California.
