October 28 - November 3, 2007

Whats better than a kept promise? Sunny weather, maybe.

Thanks Bethany and JG for your accurate and astute account of what I missed:

October 28, 2007

Today a Southeasterly wind blew the ashen remains of the fires out into the Pacific. Colors eagerly returned to their proper place, replacing the gray of haze. For the first time in several days, we were reminded of the forgotten blue of our Los Angeles sky. The day finished in hopeful golds and brilliant pinks.

October 29, 2007

Mr. Monet painted the sky today, while Walt Disney was at his side saying, “Yes, like that!” or “A little more blue over there and make that cloud a bit brighter and a tad fluffier.” Throughout the day they both took pause to admire their masterful work, and Walt would turn to Claude and say, “Perfect, simply perfect.” And Claude would smile with his eyes in agreement. I got a kink in my neck looking up in wonder all day. Beautiful.

T-shirt, jeans, a smile. Randy Newman must have penned “I Love LA” on a day just like today.

October 31, 2007

I found myself wanting to hear the sound of crunching leaves at my feet today. I breathed a bit heavier hoping for even the slightest trail of breath to curl out of my mouth. But alas, Halloween provided the appropriate conditions for the inappropriate parade of half naked girls and their sexy costumes. BOObies!

That time of year is upon us where the brisk and cloudy mornings tease us into sweaters only to find ours sweaty selves cursing at the sun by midday. No deodorant can remedy overheating in mohair.

“What was the weather like today?” –Bethany


November 3, 2007

Today every child in the greater Los Angeles area woke bright and early, not to watch Saturday morning cartoons, but to each light a smoke bomb. LA has disappeared in the haze of their prank.
