I’ve been visiting one of my oldest friends, Reese, in Los Angeles again and recently fell in love with downtown. Reese has been trying to get me to come up for months..maybe years, I can’t remember. I ended up coming for a friend’s re-branding soiree of their studio and met an amazing amount of talented folks. I had such a great time, I keep coming back. I spent the other day on Spring Street at the Social Trust. I got to hang out and watch a fashion shoot take place. It was refreshing and reminded me that I am talented and can also find my niche here.
We walked around all over downtown, I felt great. I was comfortable. It was a side of LA I had never been introduced to. I was finally hanging out with the right people and doing the right thing. I loved the old architecture, I could walk around all day. I love old shit. I ran into old acquaintances, a crabby old man and met new friends, the kind you keep around because they are like little slices of fried gold. And who doesn’t like gold? They are talented and creative and they want my conceptual input… I was stoked. I’ll be back next week and eventually permanently.
So now Los Angeles, because of a good friend and some talented kids on Spring Street, I have a fond place for you in my heart. You made me feel alive and I can’t wait to see you again.
