Went on a hike near the Hollywood sign with Isla Brown. Isla is filled with delight when she gets to tease the camera. Living in a city like LA can wear on you. There are millions of people around you, doing exactly what you are doing; trying to survive and have a bit of fun before biting the big one. When other Angelenos become annoyances rather than beings that I sympathize with, I get outside for some vitamin E. The beach, a trail, a park; I owe a lot of my remaining sanity to these places.
