If nothing else, you will be entertained…start with March 20 "You will be entertained….too good to make up."

Who knew cookies could be so crunchy and unexpected trajectories were so common?

Since I arrived in Sausalito I have met several people whose life trajectories were changed by things beyond their control. I have realized in the last 72 hours that I can completely relate to that circumstance.  Unfortunately, I am finding that I can’t relate or connect to most other aspects of people’s personalities in this town.  Maybe it’s because it takes me 5 days to wind down from NYC life when I go on vacation. Maybe it’s because I am not a morning person and now I am working on east coast time, on possibly the wrong coast, and starting work today at 630AM was brutal. In fact, tonight I started to think that many of the inhabitants of this area may (and this is just a preliminary guess) be more covertly angry at the world than those in NYC but they try to hide it beneath a veil of “enlightenment”, weed and yoga. Now don’t get me wrong as I am not opposed to the former two aspects – have never been able to get into yoga I must admit – but, in my mind, I did start to compare this area to Vermont tonight. I am starting to feel like Northern California is similar to Vermont but on the ocean and perhaps crunchier. Time will tell but these are my initial thoughts. I do prefer people who are openly angry to those that are passive aggressive, flakey or use phrases like “bless her heart” in the South to cover up a blatant insult.

The micro-climate weather situation is actually making me miss spring in NYC. And LA weather frankly. I can’t believe I left LA because I missed “seasons”?! What the heck is wrong with sunny and 72 every day? Nothing!!!!! I must say there is nothing wrong with that. The monotony and homogeneity of the people with whom I interacted with in the film business in LA is another story but there is a different sort of monotony/homogeneity here. It’s sort of a crunchy, semi-intellectual, I am finding my higher self monotony that is a bit taxing I must admit. We will see….for now, as a dear, old NYC friend pointed out….at least there are Sausalito cookies…..ImageAnd beautiful views…during the dayImageAnd at night.ImageFor now, a different view is all I needed to work on my perspective.
