Los Angeles.

It conjures up an asphalt web of insulated individuals occasionally Crashing into each other. It is that, it's designed to be that, but in the spaces between the asphalt and concrete, and sometimes on those hard spaces that shut out the earth, glimmering in the Quartz, there is life, community, and rebellion. What I write is part of that story.

Me? I'm a middle-aged, middle-class, white woman, residing in Los Angeles. Sometimes I hang out with people who are living and changing life in L.A.
