I live in Sierra Madre, a town of 10,000 people and a suburb of Los Angeles. The Angeles National Forest, a wild and mountainous area, borders the town on the north, and the sprawling metropolis of greater Los Angeles surrounds the rest of town. Sierra Madre is mostly a residential community; most people who live… Continue reading Wildlife and People and Bears, Oh My!
“Grabbing onto whatever’s around / For the soaring high or the crushing down” -Elliott Smith, “2:45 AM” His blue body was stiff long before it happened— a slice between bone, no hesitation. The case is cold but to me he’ll always be a sad man in a big house in Echo… Continue reading For Elliott
