I had some visitors yesterday, Kirstin, Fay, and Sharon. Fay lives in LA and Kirstin and Sharon live here, but both of them are from LA. When I was sixteen, I almost ran away to LA to be a surfer. Not only was I baptized by the Beatles, I was also in sacramental association with early Beach Boys music. LA was the capital of cool and Oklahoma City was a far off waste station. I waited till I was 18 to make my pilgrimage to the Endless Summer. All the kids were so absolutely cool, I was in awe of the culture and felt that I had reached heaven. My social skills limited me to just one of the many numbers gathered on the golden sands. I did see Wally from "Leave it to Beaver", buying a frozen chocolate covered banana. I wanted so much to be a part of the scene, but I wasn’t ready. The girls with ironed hair and the boys in their Pendleton shirts just looked past me…I was a face in the crowd…a Wanna-be. Now I just wanna-be here…there is no Endless Summer…just forever and ever and that is where I am…and in this photo: surrounded by California Girls!Follow me on social media:
Awwww, the only thing missing is meeeeeeeee!
Just look at all those divine faces.
Hi to them all!!! The beach awaits you, Anado, and Venice beach accepts you, always, now matter how high the RE gets.
Hugs to all 4 of you!
