Today I walked along the street this Hollywood sunny day. An old Russian-Jewish lady, not believing the news leaves bags of potatoes out for the homeless. She has twenty percent vision left in one eye. A dimming light of Hollywood, she is, she is, she is. Every morning her potatoes are gone. She has one eye, but it works good.
On our street, she is light. Who will replace her, when she goes?
100 yards from the house now, a lady asks me if I want to support Polish orphans abroad. A spinster perhaps, who never coupled. She looks happy and this is her way of staying happy. I give her the big thumbs up and say “right on!”
A 22 year-old Go-Go dancer, tells me, “we’re not children” in this America. Coping takes many forms while people hang on. Perhaps, losing the 3rd Reich Jr. tone would help the USA no end. Jr. doesn’t realize they have this tone, yet it’s good to have opinions when you’re invincible and young. Beyond the bravado facade of youth, I know where crumpets are buttered best and also who has the best butter. As yet, this kid does not. Never travelled, but knows it all. The whole world awaits a growth curve then in America’s young. How exciting. Wrap up.
Along the street, people hang woolen scarves on their fences in tartan colors. It’s the home owners way of being funny in American neighborhoods of Hollywood. Those are gone every morning too. I love the American-UK humor-blend in effect. Colorful humor, with linear distinction in woven straight lines of wool. How wool can talk in distinct clear lines, at all, is one of the wonders of the Scottish people. Tartan was a very clever idea.
Today at the cafe, Rondee can’t find Boots. Boots is always going AWOL for 3 day stints. Co-dependency disguised as love is always tricky for these two inseparable love birds. Rondee heads up to the Hollywood Hills to sit on the deck and drink martinis. It’s Midday, so I decline the invite to join. I have a sense that Rondee is moving on, Boots or no Boots.
Today at the cafe, I notice that there is a growing anger in the air. Politeness is wearing thin. Fat is the new cool. Again. Only the happiest faces know this though. I wonder if all of the skinny people of California need to have a public demonstration of sorts to let all of the anger out of their thin and wiry bodies. I can’t think of an issue that would unite them all to do something community centered. It would go against, the very ‘individual concept’ they’ve built up for themselves, so I abandon that idea. Pronto.
As I blog close to Luis, my barista bro I open the newspaper and look at the latest sports cars ads from Europe. Va-zoom goes the boom boom boom silent sounds from the newsprint pages. I realize that people love to taunt other people from newspapers. But perhaps some new arrivals to California from the Middle East will look good in these cars as they acclimate themselves in Hollywood. Wall street are quite impressed by fast cars I’ve noticed, even when crude oil is peaking.
The Pike River coffee tastes good today. Luis has outdone himself. What a good brew. I have already seen a star in action today, celebrity news all pales in comparison to a little old lady’s daily actions. With her holocaust history shining so bright, On our street, she is light. She is, she is, she is. Who will replace her, when she goes?
