Remember when “The Secret” came out and everybody was on this trip where “thoughts become things” and then they manifest in actions? Well I thought about that on my way back home to LA and realized it’s true (we already know that right?)… Turns out I thought and repeatedly uttered a few syllables a few weeks ago, when my cash was running out in Mexico City: “Se me hace que me voy a tener que regresar en camión.” And what do you know? I found myself on a bus back home to LA this weekend.
It wasn’t so bad, you know. The trip was only 7 hours (when it usually takes 5 hours driving from the Mexican border to LA) and the bus had free wi-fi (woohoo!) so I was connected throughout. Nevermind that the bus sounded and bounced like it was about to fall apart. I roamed around the Imperial Valley, the Salton Sea, Indio, Palm Springs, 29 Palms, San Bernardino, El Monte, EastLos, and finally downtown LA.
Ahhh, it’s good to be home.
