I Can See For Miles

Apologies for chiming in so late in the aftermath of my first day at the new job. Contrary to what Elle jokingly posted in the comments of my post from this morning, the drastic change in scenery and schedule has not made me forget about this blog nor the kind readers who come by it.

And speaking of scenery, my office has a window and that window has a south-facing view (click to quadruplify):


OK so to some the cities of Westchester and El Segundo and the occasional 747 inbound to LAX in the distance with the Palos Verdes heights waaaaay out there in the smog might not be a vista to end all vistas , but I’m loving it.

And on the inside things are very nice as well. I did the obligatory first-day office-wide introductions to a group of very nice people most of whose names I promptly forgot, filled out all sorts of benefits forms and figured out how to use the phone system. Plus the computer system of choice is Macs, which is a surprise bonus. All in all, a great start.

On top of that I just learned that the MTA’s No. 439 bus goes from Union Station to a stop practically in front of the office building. Sweet!

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 laonstage.com, 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."
