L.A. is a prism. And because it's a prism hammered three-hundred thirty-three days a year with blazing, unrelenting white light, where you stand determines which part of its spectrum you'll see. Personally, my favorite angle of view is from five-thousand, eight-hundred feet above, atop the recently...

My trainer, John, is married to a gorgeous ex-model who knows how to cook, which might be why John talks more about food than almost anyone I've ever met. "She made a roast chicken stuffed with lots of garlic last night, and it was awesome," he told me. "So I'm rather pungent today....

To refresh the idea of what the OVERLAND blog is all about: to take one of life's many wistful abstract concepts each week, and weave them into one of...

6:11pm Citrus Ave. I am home. Left work early - not too early - 5:35pm. At 4:30pm I went to the gym in the basement at work, and since that's officially in the working facility, I consider that still on the clock. But now I am home and I have the whole evening before me. I am drinking a glass of...

Just walked to Ralph's - the over crowded location at 3rd and La Brea. Even on a Thursday morning at 11am people are waiting in line at the deli counter. Walking home, turning down Sycamore as I always do with it's beautiful canopy of trees and four bedroom, 2 1/4 bathroom two story apartments...

For most of you the name Kari Winters may not mean much but for me, the name is more meaningful than words can say. Kari Winters was known in a niche market within a niche market. Kari, a multi-award winning cat writer was found dead in her home three weeks ago. In her too-short life, Kari made a...

Friday, June 5, 2009 9:44am Citrus Ave. It is raining. Beautiful out. Can see the Hollywood hills. Clear, clear. Rain reminds me of my childhood. Of the weather in Victoria, B.C. Some things that remind me of my childhood I don’t like. But the rain, the rain is good. Just home from walking...

The very, very tall fellow at my physical therapy session definitely thinks head and shoulders above the crowd. He has such an inventive mind that he thought of yet another use for Guantanamo Bay (after it is emptied of prisoners). In order to help GM emerge from bankruptcy, we the taxpayers who...
