just looked up from the cafe au lait and fresh melon slices from trader joes and saw the fiery sunrise over the billboards and palm trees.
the Colo(u)rs here are Extraordinary.
even pale wash-over-pink stone glows against the blue/blue sky. (tiny bit Miami, non?)
while the lipstick red of the newest building at the pacific Design Center fairly Pops against the west coast sunglasses-clad-mascara-lashed-eyes.
it’sMuch harder to summon up melancholy here.
but we Are European so it does slip in.
Thank goodness for late night phonecalls to the Other Coast (late for them; supper-time here) where we perched on the tiny step between the boudoir and the Lounge (a very 70s LA word) as we have no chairs, as yet (still on the truck heading west) and cradled the phablet (phone/tablet-ness) to our ear to hear the strong tones of vibrant nyc and the odd siren outside over There.
The tiny step down makes us smile.
It’s the narrowest door we’ve seen (seriously expecting to unload large boxes as they won’t Fit).
But still – we adore a step-down living room.
It’s going to be a lovely day.
Building a new Life is sometimes scary and we Do wonder if we might have Settled down by now – but it appears not.
However, today we meet our new trusty motorized Prius companion for the Road Ahead (didn’t that clever email@example.com write a book called that? We did use to love quoting from it and telling smart people who worked in glamorous-profession-land how in the Future we would have handheld devices that were responsive and operated on wireless frequencies – how they did stare ;)
Funny how the Future doesn’t look so scary when it arrives.
But 5 minutes before; that’s a different story.
Have a beautiful Tuesday, darlings.
Wrap up warm in Europe and nyc.
Don’t forget the sunscreen and sarong in Australia.
