|Artist at Work in Old Town Pasadena|
I am now an artist in Southern California. I don't earn much money but it's okay. I now live with other artists like me. It's an al fresco style with the bridge on top as our roof. I think it's called the 605 Freeway. The rent is free, as long as it doesn't rain. Which is near non-existent here. The sun is fine. Food is adequate for the most part. I get it down the Mission, which is a few miles away. Sometimes, Todd would pick up food for the rest of us when he is sober. He is a swell guy. He wants to be an actor. But I don't think I'll marry him. Besides, he has not proposed yet. Oh by the way, I found a cute cat at back of the restaurant where I used to work as a bust maid. I named him Jasper. I don't know why but he looks like a Jasper. He roams around at the Old Town during the night, and sleeps during the day. Maybe I'll see him tonight. I save a few bits of arugula I picked up at someone's garden. I hope it stays fresh because Jasper doesn't like to eat it when it's wilted. I think this is all for now. Oh yeah, please send my love to little David. I missed his laughs.
