Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

Robert Crais: To Write in L.A.

“The Los Angeles Times determined we have 114 separate and distinct neighborhoods here in Los Angeles. The city has posted several hundred blue signs naming far more. L.A. is a mash-up of uncountable, diverse neighborhoods spread over 465 square miles; hard and soft, painted in colors from concrete gray and security bar black to putting lawn green and jacaranda snowfall purple; beautiful, mysterious, dangerous, welcoming neighborhoods, soundtracked by the music of more languages than you or I or even the Los Angeles Times can count.”

Novelist Robert Crais draws from perspectives both near and far to uncover a city rich in mystery and opportunities in his recent piece for the L.A. Times and the Festival of Books that took place over the weekend, A Story to Find on Every Street.

    Festival of Books, sounds enchanting! Man you’ve got the best events going on over there in LA, I just saw a poster for the Hero Complex Festival by LA Time, I wish I could go to that, too!

      I’m lucky, alright, to live in a place like this one. The Hero Complex, at the festival and the L.A. Times online news site, is one of my favorite visits. We need to schedule a another trip for you and hubby to make it out this way come April, Ruth. Thank you very much.
