LA fully loaded last hours
Or it was the light, the Saturday sun making all the chrome and glass do that awesome two-tone thing. You know, blue and gold.
Or it was the Korean driver who took me to the airport. Said he's been driving a cab for a year after he lost his life savings with his brother-in-law in a scam of some sort. "How much did you lose, if I might ask? $30? $50 thousand."
"$750,000. But it's OK. I'm happy now. No more sleepless nights."
LAX here looks like a picture I would have drawn of the future with my crayolas.
I had sleepless nights in LA. Both of them. One from anxiety, one because of the red-eye flight back to Cinci. I love sitting up half the night in an 'under construction' space. It's the fluorescent lights that make it so awesome.
