Sometimes in life you get to start a fresh new chapter.
Today, I feel like I’m starting a whole new book.
Yep. I got that first day of school, fresh, clean notebook, crisp pages, shiny ink-filled pens vibe.
I’ve been away from LA for almost a year and a half. Not totally, strictly “away.” I’ve been there for chunks of time. Months, sometimes. But I haven’t had a true home there in something like 18 months.
It’s been an exciting 18 months, for the most part. I did get to start at Groundlings. I spent two weeks in Thailand. A month traveling all over Ecuador. Performed onstage in NYC for the first time.
I worked random jobs- a hosting gig here, a commercial there.
I got to go home- as in my birth home- a lot, spend a lot of time with family, mine and my husband’s.
Today, we are packing up the Cadillac and starting the road trip home. To the west coast. To LA. To the place my dreams live. To the city that makes me feel like I can take a deep breath and be the most me.
Life is full of twists and turns you can never expect. Now it’s time to ride those twists and turns out west, to jump on Route 66 and start my new book with a road trip adventure.
Also, Los Angeles is now offering yoga classes with Lola the Sloth, so it seems my return is just in time. 🙂
