Something like home

Mick and I go on lover(ly) walks a lot and I find silly things like this. (Thanks iPhone for making everything almost too easy.)

I have been walking more around my lil corner of Los Angeles. It's been nice getting to know my neighborhood for all of it's quirky and beautiful details.

I haven't updated in a long time due to my silly internet connection and it's lack of uploading ability. But here are some things I have done in the past few months. I am trying to work more with film via disposable cameras, cheap and fun!

I am shaking that thing off. The one that I still can't figure out. That thing that made me feel so awful for so long. It's fleeting.
It's funny the things that make me feel so much more alive. 
Like walking down dirty streets until my back aches, 
deconstructing my mind, 
getting lost, talking with strangers at midnight and 
running down the Blvd. at 1 o'clock in the morning because I am young and strong and I can.
I've been telling my stories and having someone listen and smile. 
And mean it.
A few days ago an old man smiled at me through his bay window, waved and blew me kisses. These are the people I have been looking for. The ones that listen and smile and blow kisses.
People can be good and I am remembering that now. 
It's easily forgotten in this city but it's coming back to me and I am overwhelmed with excitement for this place.
There's something in the way the 101 freeway curves into downtown, and the light hits the buildings' glass, and the palm trees dot the skyline, and the sun sets everything on fire with that perfect light. My heart is here. My heart was meant to be here watching the sun set over Sunset from my front porch.

I took out the Hassy for a lil breath of fresh air this weekend. Mick and I wandered around and explored the street furniture of Echo Park.

Camera in hand.

Amy and I went photo-ing. Besides getting kicked out of an abandoned building, I'd say our venture was a success.

Jim Jones

Dear Jim Jones,

Jim Jones was my great grandaddy
He sent me a letter in 1994 and I read it today for the first time.
It almost made me cry, not because I missed him, but because I couldn't remember any of the things he told me about in the letter. Like the Valentine's day "mug for you to drink from" 
He told me in the letter exactly what it looked like and I could not remember it's existence. 
He sent me candy and notes and bird seed and a little umbrella but I didn't remember any of it. 
He hoped that "you and your mother and daddy are getting along fine." And I all of a sudden missed my family's southern drawl. 
I found myself wondering if he meant to sign the letter " Your Greatdaddy" Because it made me laugh a little. 
But most of all I wanted nothing more than to send him a thank you letter in return. 
Thank you Great Grandaddy Jones for all my treats, I am sorry I don't remember them.
Your Great Grandaughter,

I don't have anything to say anymore.

I am losing my memory which scares me more than anything. 
I don't have anything of substance to say.
And I need to get back to that place where I can finish a goddamn book.

I found this.

I have these terrible habits;
of cracking my knuckles 
and drinking far too much coffee 
and even more whiskey
and losing myself 
and getting anxious around people
and hating them for it
and being jealous 
and not understanding why I do 
any of these things.

I guess on the bright side, 

I could be a smoker.

Oh boy!

There has been a rush of change. I am a bystander for now but no matter what happens I know one thing for certain, this one's going to hurt like hell.

I found the horse from "The Science of Sleep", he's had it rough.

Out of character.

Besides this blog and my mother's kitchen wall (I graduated from the refrigerator), I don't really put my photographs out into the world. Recently some brilliant friends of mine started a small publication of sorts and I am proud to be a part of it.

I went to Las Vegas for a few days.

Vegas didn't help my sanity/lack there of, but I got a good sunburn. Sometimes you just need a sunburn (or a phone call).

I need to get my hands dirty

and play with film again.

Found art: this is where it began, on a post- it.

I am losing my mind. It's evident now.

I should get better at the Mondays at 10 thing.
