everything that makes you wonder

August 5, 2011

One of those nights when there are more important things to do than sleep.

You should really watch this video.  It’s beautiful.  A friend put it on Facebook with the comment, “Haters gonna hate, but this is my town.”

I realized that I’ve written about quite a few of these lights before.   The Santa Monica ferris wheel, the airplanes over LAX.  Once, on another blog — in what feels like a different lifetime — I wrote about the lights of downtown:

There are these certain curves that I love on all of the Los Angeles freeways.  There’s one on the 5 — one on the 10 — one on the 101.  They’re the curves where you’re driving, driving, and then all of a sudden you sweep around a corner and there’s downtown Los Angeles:  Skyscrapers frozen in electric exclamation points, a sparkling geometry on a pink-neon sky.

What was that line from The Perks of Being a Wallflower? — “Lights on buildings and everything that makes you wonder.”

Hello, blogland.  How’ve you been?

    I missed your magical writing 🙂 I will now crack myself up and think of you whenever sky scrapers resemble exclamation marks at night. Welcome back to blogland!
