Somewhere near Redondo Beach, California, at sunset.

The song, “Santa Monica,” is one of my all-time favorites. And the year it was released, 1995–one of the best years for music. So much great alternative rock music came out in the mid-90’s… I was living in Cleveland, in Ohio City, in a one bedroom apartment. A great soundtrack in my head for those times… And great times to go along with the memorable music!
