Good air

Just a quick one this morning, my parents are coming up today from Orange County for a visit. With the dog, of course!

It rained here yesterday and that means today we'll have perfect air and the whole city will be sparkly clean and shiny when the sun comes out. And the sun always comes out. Los Angeles after a rainshower is a beautiful thing, I wish I could bottle it up and send it to you. I'd rather send it to you than have you come here and clog up the freeways, you know.

Sometimes I feel like this city and my very small life inside it are the only things I know for sure. I know when it rains the traffic will be snarly and I know that when it clears the air will be perfect. But I have no idea what my future holds. My life has no set trajectory and when I dwell on it too much I panic.

Then I remember that even when I thought my life was set and even when I was sure of what my future would look like I was wrong, and it changed, and eventually it all worked out (sort of) or at least it got me somewhere new.

Today's three things:

1) My parents coming to visit
2) Cool nights and downright chilly mornings
3) Baked potatoes, nature's perfect food
