Time

Montmartre, Paris

"We pass the time of day to forget how time passes."

Many moments have not been appreciated until they are long gone, distant memories.

The Bittersweet Benefits Of Gentrification

La Cuatro, Santa Ana, CA

I've always wanted to see my hometown cleaner, safer, and inviting.  Now that it is actually happening, it makes me sad to see the old businesses go. Some don't fear the change, "We've been here for forty years, I don't think we will be going away anytime soon." Many just put it out of their mind. When a greeter at one of the small dress shops that caters to Mexican debutante balls was asked if He was concerned about his job, his reply was "What can you do? We are all going to die anyways."

Becks

You were my loyal companion. Never complained or asked for money.  All you wanted were a few cuddles and a loving home.  I hope I was able to provide you that. I feel like I neglected you at times, but you were always there to warm up to me when I'd lay in bed feeling alone.  I miss you so much. You're gone now. After ten years of friendship, it's going to be difficult not seeing you everyday.  I love you Becks.

You loved Deluxe Mac and Cheese and Dino Nuggets

You had an unforgettable smile

You pushed through the physical pain while earning your MA

You dedicated your life to children with disabilities

You listened

You cared

 

Goodnight Sleepy Head

Pop

The sound of two bottles of soda rolling along the floor of the car as it brakes to a halt. It's hot outside, the bottles collide, chiming.  Brake, roll, crash.

Not even the shopping carts are safe in L.A.

Record stores disappeared, bookstores are struggling to stay in business, Amazon is working on having everything delivered to you instantly.  The 3D printing industry is growing exponentially.  From toiletries to major household items, more and more people are making their purchases online. How much longer before brick and mortar stores become a thing of the past?

Eh, maybe I shouldn't have used exhausted chemistry for this roll. These cheap little color chemistry sets aren't cutting it anymore.  At first I thought this person was on their phone, but upon closer inspection, it appears she is playing on a portable gaming device? I hope its the latter.

Funny how certain images trigger memories thought to be long long lost.
