Spirit in The Dark

I have always loved Los Angeles. It was my haven when I immigrated in ’89 and again yesterday when I finally escaped Terminal C in Newark. Driving up the 110 it was a little overcast, with lush Cali native plants on both sides…hallelujah! It’s strange to think that I would miss the smell of LAX air, doing the dishes before I make the morning coffee, the cat’s incessant meows for dinner and the noise of the metro passing through Highland Park.

Wonderful Things

Soft bed at 2:20am
Jackie’s calmness amidst chaos

Sativa’s resolve…what a rock star!
The Design Babes at Wallace & Church
The comfort of my husband’s voice on the phone
Aretha Franklin on my iPod
Kelsey & Emmett doing SC Proud
Snow drift on a crisp NY morning

Terrible Things

Continental Airlines
Newark airport
800 numbers
Seats with armrests
Snow storms anytime
Drunkards on St Patty’s Day
Corporate brainwashing in action
Walking off a flight home
Missing my dear friend Steven's memorial
Feeling helpless

Despite it all, the good still outweighed the bad. And yes, I can taste my spit again.
