I may be MOVING!

After nearly FOUR years, I am in the process of moving.  When I moved out to LA, I had to pick an apartment over a weekend and I pretty much chose the first one I came across.  At the time, I thought that I would stay here a year and be gone. 

Well, time passed very quickly and one year turned into four.  It's funny how that works. 

I am probably going to be moving to North Hollywood.  If you're not from Los Angeles, let me share a few things about this neighborhood. 
  • It ain't anywhere near Hollywood.  Or West Hollywood.  It is in the "valley" so the rest of Los Angeles looks down its long nose at it.   
  • It is affectionately known as NoHo by its residents which is one way of trying to brighten a dull reputation and pretend that the neighborhood is ARTSY.  In fact, the area which I'm interested in is called the NoHo Arts District because it employs large numbers of underemployed actors. 
  • There are likely not as many knifings and shootings as you might think after driving through the area at night. 
  • Graffitti and homeless people give the area character.  You must also consider that graffitti is an art form and those homeless people might be the actors that you applauded at the theater the night before. 
I haven't had time to take pictures of my new neighborhood so I thought I would "borrow" some pictures to give you a better idea of what NoHo really looks like. 

Yes, it might look a little scary to you but I will be proud to call it my home

I can't wait to move!
