Disaster No. 1603

I have to post something.

This has been the most fucked up year of my life.

Night one was like being the last people on earth, with CNN
but no phones or power or way out.

I can't watch the anniversary coverage.

I drive through Lakeview and Gentilly twice a week to go
to UNO, a little island of manicured green lawns in a vast
brown water stained wasteland of broken dreams.

I still haven't been to the lower 9.

I wish I had the energy to do more for other people.

I have my FEMA number memorized.

What a thing my friend.

Here's to a better year. Please.

Cheers to that. Thanks.

I doubt there's much I can do here, but holler if there is....if you need to get away for a couple of days, we've always got a spare room.

Thanks. I'm working on engineering myself a real vacation (maybe even one involving beach) soon enough.

Beach...hmm...if you by chance end up in the Cape Cod area, I can probably hook you up there too...my wife has a bunch of family there.

Venice beach welcomes you. Just email me.
