In response to "Arthur to graze in N.Y. pastures," Chicken Corner received the following query from a reader who signed "hopeful in Santa Monica":
I guess when a guy like Jay leaves town it makes me question whether I'm wasting my life here or if I'm missing something out of stubbornness or resistance to change. But, I know I have a great life here, I'm not crazy... right?
[signed] hopeful in Santa Monica
And Chicken Corner's Zen Master tossed some pennies and replies:
Dear Hopeful in S.M.,
When moving cross country the way is most fortunate when you to go to something rather than away. A river travels in one direction. So does time. Happiness exists where happiness exists. Carusoland is not so easy to dismiss so easily, much as we find it tempting.
That's all she wrote.
