A Pirate’s Exile: Lost in the City of Angels

Eatonville, WA, August 18th, 2014-Los Angeles is not for the faint of heart.  It is a dichotomy of how stunningly beautiful and depressingly ugly life can be.  As I pulled into the LA Greyhound terminal, I had a dollar to my name.  I traded it for quarters and called my Uncle Mickey.  Uncle Mickey is my Grandma’s brother and also one of the most local Angelenos around.  He has been in the same apartment in San Pedro since the late ’70s.  He and his neighbor, Jessica, came to pick me up.  It was late and I hadn’t eaten much in the last three days.  I hadn’t slept well in nearly three days and the combination of hunger and exhaustion made […]
