L.A. Co. thread
My muse is like an old spinster trying to piece together ballgowns from decades old fabric she has lying around. Sometimes it takes awhile for the final reveal. There's a book thread I've wanted to weave about all the shoes I go through. The cover image came to me several months ago. The title a few days ago. The body of the book is my life -- never really thought I had a memoir in me, but maybe I do? Having lived in both furthest North and East corners of Los Angeles County now, I feel the time has come for how all that living in the County I was born in is a relevant structure to my story.

Now I just have to be willing to write what I remember. And the weirdest memory of all is the day I remember first thinking of writing about the region -- although at the time it was more focused on the San Gabriel Valley. I was into the history. At that time, I couldn't have been more than fifteen. Now at more than three times that age. I'm thinking of acting on that excitement.
