Random Musings: I once heard that in Japan, sushi chefs are traditionally assumed to have a dark and mysterious past that the diner should never inquire about. Because of this I love sushi even more. And on the topic of food, I have a running theory that all Mexican restaurants in LA have an endless number of rooms full of people eating in them. I find this very comforting. And on the subject of Mexican I must publicly admit that I occasionally kind of dig the music on Mexican radio stations I pick up as I drive through LA.
People often tell me that I remind them of a good friend they used to know in high school. I consider this a compliment. I am probly way too proud of the fact that I I recently met one of the pirates from the Pirate Dinner restaurant in Anaheim. If I ever write a novel for adults (I write for kids) it will be called 'The Fine' and my most recent awesome band name for the band I will never form is "The Big Deals."
William Blake said we see through our eyes, not with them. If you see a guy not looking at his phone, it's probably me. I appreciate the present as often as I can. I'm an LA culture geek with a passion for all that's cool--from magic to Art to live music. I would consider myself gentle but strong. Many have called me kind. I have an active lifestyle--mostly activities that, at some point, involve being upside down. I worked in the tech sector for ages and, having forged my own path, am a writer and teacher after setting out from my hometown/comfort zone of New York City. I think friends and shortcuts are the most important things to have in LA, and I am lucky to have them both.
