I’ve had the greatest pleasure getting to know my new friend Keiko. It’s one thing to meet over a blogging meet-up and another thing to spend time getting to know someone you admire and respect. Even though she was in Los Angeles busy working she managed to make some time to hang with me and Adam, and this morning we ran by the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market to walk around and take in the sights. Because the best days are Wednesdays I don’t get the chance to visit this market too often, but when I do you can count on me to buy bunches and bunches of beautiful California fruits and vegetables. With stuff this good it’s hard not too.
I believe Keiko had a good time, and she even commented on how open and engaging the people were. Sometimes Los Angelenos gets a bum rap and people think it’s full of brash attitude and trafflc. Well, it usually is, but there are always those little nuggets of charm and civility waiting to be discovered.
