LA Story

I came to Los Angeles four years ago, with everything I could pack into my best friend’s 1994 Geo, no job and a couple hundred bucks of graduation money. When anybody asked me why I came, I shrugged and said, “To have a good time.”

And now in my last week as a California girl, I am awash with nostalgia. This morning, for no other reason than the heartbreak of what wasn’t meant to be forever, I found myself poring over photos. Forgive the intrusion of my melancholy, of my last good-bye.

The apartment.

The never-was.

The store.

The show.

The street.

The eats.

The script.

The sun.

    Where are you moving?

    Don’t be sad. I gave you a little prezzie on my blog. It’s almost as good as a free unicorn.

    Ooh- I think that kind of present might even trump the unicorn! Thanks a ton! I can’t wait to check out the other sites you listed too. Clearly you have exceptional taste.

    I’ll be gracing Chicago with my presence next.
