Discuss My Favorite Way Of Relaxing
First You Get A Five Gallon Can Of Vegetable Oil, A Rented Pony and The Stobbins Twins...
Sorry, I just gave away half of the plot line for my next short story. Or are those the plans for later tonight? Weekend time just seems to blur together. Maybe it's the Thorazine? I'll have to talk to my psycho-therapist about adjusting the dose.
SERIOUSLY? When I have the time (and I have found through the years that if you don't make time you lose time) I love to turn off my productive side and drown in others creativity. My mate and I maintain a number of memberships in museums in the area. These include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The Huntington Library. We also have, within easy driving distance The J. Paul Getty Museum and any number of smaller local history, botanical and specialty venues.
We also both enjoy music to no end. For that you might find us at The Hollywood Bowl, The House of Blues, Hollywood, or again, any number of other wonderful venues, large and small in this area.
I attend frequent readings and literary events as a member of the audience. I have a number of on-line courses I am enjoying. And when the mood strikes, we jump in the car and just drive. Where is never as important as just going.
And as counter intuitive as this may seem...my main form of relaxation is still writing. Yup, poetry, short fiction...this blog...I love writing and these parts are those side roads that are the scenery and inspiration for the larger portions. Told you all a while back...OCD!

In the meantime...live, love, write.
