One really good thing about living in Los Angeles is that people come here. It’s big—an international city, really. It’s a destination, let’s say.
And this is a good thing because eventually, people I know end up here. For work, for weddings, because they are musicians on tour, and that means that I get to see them, when ordinarily I wouldn’t. In the next two months alone, I have four far-away friends who are making a trek to L.A., and I will get to have a visit with each one of them. In a summer that’s been long and relatively empty, I feel like these little visits are a gift, since it would cost me well over a thousand dollars to visit all of them.
