i think the key to keeping your sanity if you live in LA is having a nearby patch of grass, ocean, mountain, giant tree. some semblance of nature needs to be close. my need for greenery has become very insistent. so insistent in fact, that i spend time each day coveting our neighbors backyard and wondering how inappropriate it would be if i just set up camp there.
sigh. it’s times like this i really miss new zealand.
so i’ve been scouring craigslist for apartments/homes in silverlake/los feliz and surrounding areas that have keywords: garden, patio, lawn, deck. and after a month of searching, it seems finding any kind of habitat with green space is about as difficult as finding someone in LA who doesn’t work in ‘the industry’.
today i spied this little house on miss moss, and now i want it. obviously. i’m sure it’s no where near la, but a girl can dream.
