"People ask 'if you're trying to find enlightenment, why come to Los Angeles?' And I answered 'where better to find the truth than in a city that's all about facade.'"And then, of course, there's Isherwood, whose words are words to live by, if you happen to live in Los Angeles. Beneath the facade, there are layers upon intricate layers of real people -- poets, gardeners, cooks, teachers, writers, scientists. Unfortunately, the closer you live to Sunset Strip, the further you must venture to find this.
So Lovely, be easy on yourself. Planet Earth is blue and all that.
