A bar I once walked by welcomes me in a hotel on Little Santa Monica - this place means big things - important things. Today a room sits empty awaiting a party and a vacant patio dreams of a The past is so important - the present is a hard pill - tomorrow is another step forward towards greatness. Red wine, a juicy burger, and some memories. I'm fortunate, saddened, and inspired all at once - the unknown dragging me kicking and screaming into it's plan. Raise a glass to the experience and deal with it.
