In LA I went to visit April, a friend of mine from Dallas. April, who is currently sharing an apartment with her friend, has a balcony with a stunning view of the LA skyline.
April and I go back to, oh, 1998 when we were both sucked into the maelstrom around an amazing girl named Sasha. She and Sasha are at the center of many tales, none of which I have the energy to recount here. Regardless, after a series of mishaps and misadventures, April is now enrolled in a top-notch actor's school (after all, this is Hollywood we're talking about), serves the complex herbal needs of local movie stars at Whole Foods Market, and has an excitable cat named Persephone. Despite a very complex and dramatic history (it took about five hours for her to summarize just the last two years), she has come through quite well, and I have no doubt will have many remarkable achievements.
