Cory visits L.A.
My dear friend Cory came to visit me in LA and it was only the second time we've seen each other since Katrina. We both worked at NOLA.com together and now she is in Seattle working for the Seattle Times- again, crazy how all of us are now spread out all over the country.
She came in for a conference so I got to spend some time with her before and after her workshops. We got to get a nice long run in (almost an hour!) all along the marina and down Venice Beach- it truly was the perfect run. The waves were huge that day and a couple of times we had to sprint towards the strand since we were running on the packed sand near the shoreline and the waves would just come from no where! We decided to run on the pavement heading back to the marina where the car was parked. Good thinking- running felt like a breeze after running on the beach!
We also got to go see my friend Cory's band- the Dustbowl Cavaliers- one night at the M Bar and she got to meet some of my friends at Yung's house for Yung's b-day party! Good times...
Having Cory here made me realize how much I missed our little group, our lunch club every day at NOLA.com, but especially our talks and the times we all got to hang out (girl's night!). I guess the silver lining in all of this is at least now I have a place to stay when I am in Seattle! I hope it won't be too hard to stay in better touch-- I promise I will try!
