I am a native Angeleno and mother of two Flying Monkeys (Iza Pizza and Bellini Mussolini).
I grew up in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA.
I have always had a soft spot for Downtown LA. Even in the years when you could only travel a few blocks without stumbling upon the Skid Row scene, the beauty of the Historic buildings bore down on you that you had to resuscitate this underused and ignored Downtown. From #BH to #DTLA to #Silicon Valley.
This blog chronicles a journey – full of musings, poetry, feel good quotes, and stories experienced along the way.
These stories are meant to inspire the sadness away; to offer a hand when life gets dark and overwhelming so you can throw off the weight from your chest onto the universe via words as light as feathers. I hope you enjoy what you read. Pain is in some of these stories but strength and happiness follow. Some of these stories might be hard for some of you to read but it’s important to know that they happen and for those who have been there, it’s especially important for you to know that It Gets Better.
