Love you!

I got to leave the Central Valley to attend college in Los Angeles. From dorm living I moved to my first apartment: a studio third floor walkup in Glendale, complete with roaches & a huge hole in the ceiling over the stove. My parents were horrified–I was in heaven. This is where I met my first jacaranda trees, not growing through my ceiling but viewed for blocks from my curtainless third floor windows. These trees bloomed purple! And when I say purple, I mean a vivid showy Hollywood drag queen purple that explodes in LA in late spring and I had never seen anything quite like it before.
