welcome to LA


i've been listening to "the recipe" on repeat on/off for hours. its just so smooth, i cant help it. i really do miss LA so much. i was trying to explain to my friend how i have yet to expirence something as peaceful and [/insert made up shit] mind-righting as sitting on the edge of the pacific ocean on redondo watching the sunset. or the look of the moon on the water from a bluff at pt fermin. or how the world disappears when you get an opportunity to miss all the traffic and just ride out on pch. theres something about how the wind blows and the sun touches your skin. i know it has its own special brand of bullshit, but i love south bay like you dont even know.

i've never had this level of peace on the gulf or atlantic coasts. i'm sure there are other places this feeling can be achieved and i'm more than willing to take anyone up on the offer to let me test the mediterranean on their dime. i also know being there with the limited responsibility of a teenager is flavoring my feelings quite a bit, but i've  never in life felt more calm anywhere as i have in the places i described above. 

LA i had some bad times with you, my love. but thank you for showing me that i am capable of complete and total serenity. this crazy mind of mine needed to know it was possible.
