Postcard from LA

Oh, so THAT'S why it's called Sunset Blvd...

I’ve been in LA for nearly a week now and it’s been fairly intense; working solid from 10am through ’til 4am most days (while my body tries to adjust to the time difference) and generally trying to keep on top of things. We wrapped project one on Sunday morning and project two wraps tonight; it’s been a helluva ride.

Fortunately, thanks to the timings of both projects, I was able to take Sunday night and Monday morning off to catch up with my friends Matt and Jen. The former introduced me to Ryan Penagos, aka Agent_M, the editor for Marvel.com (so much geekery was had!), and the latter took a colleague and I down to Dog Beach for a midday stroll in the Sun.

Sitting in the sunshine two weeks from Christmas is a very odd feeling indeed.

What else is new?

I’ve decided to take up dance again and I’m writing a truck load more these days too. A friend got one of my pieces published recently; non-trade, in-print and actually out there in the real world, so that’s quite exciting. I have a couple more I want to submit, so we’ll see if that leads anywhere.

Thing is, you know that bit in Star Trek where Spock tells the rest of the crew how everything has changed? That now, thanks to Nero’s actions, they’re all living in an alternate reality…?

Yeah. That.

  1. Yesterday when I said “Yay!” to your taking back up with dance, what I didn’t get to say was that I think we all get so busy that we don’t enfold communal body art into our lives. Going to the gym or doing wii may be enough for fitness but is not enough for our souls, but dance, yoga, tai chi with folks, etc. help exercise our bodies, minds, and can add a good layer of peace or soaring joy.

    About ten years ago, I took a string of partner dance classes (swing) and learned both the follow and the lead. It was so much fun. It helped my inner heart soar when other parts of my life weren’t working so well.

    The dance class you described yesterday sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

  2. La La Land…

    I don’t know what to say…

    Schedule a tour of the American Apparel factory while they are still in business. It’s something else to see immigrant workers smiling, getting a fair wage and access to health care.

    And have drinks on the roof of the downtown Standard Hotel. You won’t regret that.
