"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Post Carmeggedon

You know what is so great about Los Angeles?

The artists.

They're everywhere here. And they're inspiring.

You know what else is so great abut Los Angeles?

The work crews who were so thorough but quick in getting the 405 reopened almost 12 hours before they had originally anticpated!

Watch this. It's 405 in 4:05. It reminds me of the stop motion Rudolph cartoons that are on every winter. It's gorgeous.


  1. Everything looks like little toys. Like the Doozers!

    I can't imagine what it was like to this devoid of cars and noise. I suppose it was similar to Time's Square being completely silent and dark save for pedestrians during the big black out a few years back.

    Kudos to your work crews for getting it done under time! I was kinda fearing they would take MORE time.

  2. Thanks for the good vibes, and for the good news about government doing good things well!


Play nice.
