For the past 25 years, I’ve had a home in Santa Monica, Calif., a beautiful town in Los Angeles that has a lot going for it: A beautiful beach alongside the Pacific Ocean, fresh salt air and surfing.
What Santa Monica doesn’t have is space. There are too many people, too many cars and too much residential and commercial development.
If I wanted to plant a garden the size of Groundhog Hill, I simply could not. There is no room in that inn.
