Naturally, I was bound to treat myself to a sunset at the Santa Monica pier and it turned out to be very relaxing. As the sun lowers you are treated to the soothing guitar tunes of the entertainers on deck. Across the horizon you can see the shadowy outline of the hills as the evening breaks into dusk. Helicopters patrol close overhead periodically, and the seagulls are not afraid to fly right in front of you as you lean against the rails on the edge of the pier. The carnival portion nice to enjoy, but for me nothing beats a good sunset. The key point in any location has got to be the part when day transitions into night. The sheer beauty of it can be the highlight of any occasion. It definitely brings out the romance as you are most likely to find lovestruck tourists holding hands and embracing each other under the orange glow of the falling sun as it slowly buries itself behind the distant mountains across the sea..
When people ask me where I'm from that's always a tough one. The only response I have is.. nowhere. True, it sounds like a cop out but it's the only answer that I can deliver. All over is where I'm from and I doubt that's going to change because the list continues to grow. Born in Downtown Los Angeles, my journey from youth to present includes NJ, NC, GA, VA, KY, NY, NV, etc...even a little trip to Tijuana (definitely going back) and now full circle back to L.A. I sometimes dream of the American Dream: A house, wife, couple kids, a white picket fence, maybe even a dog named Spike. But the reality is that those things are beyond the scope of my reach. I'm a Nomad..this is my way of life.
