Part Of The Scenery

When you look through the years
And see what you could have been
Ooooh, what you might have been
If you’d had more time

In light of today’s unfathomable and horrific violence that occured this morning on the other side of the country, I need to go to the edge of this side and get me some late-afternoon beachification… even if it’s just to bike by.

As such I’ll be going west before going east and taking The Long Way Home.


UPDATED(9:49 pm.): Photos of the ride home are here.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
