Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.

Los Angeles

This morning, I found myself involved in a very meaningful conversation loosely based on my recent move from Pasadena back to the city of Angels. I had quite a revelation regarding this city and how the last 7 years of my life here have been affected, and I came up with the following:

When you juxtapose this city Los Angeles with any other U.S. City, the primary difference will be the path that unfolds for the traveller. It doesn’t matter what the inspiration was for the relocation; career, love, opportunity, what have you…what will matter is what will take place in the life of the individual after sometime. Your passion will be realized, but for most of us, it will not be readily accessible without some endurance of a personal nature.

It is guaranteed you will endure personal struggle. Whether you were born masticated said silver spoon or you reside in a homeless shelter, it will befall you. In this city is everyone and everything. Your inhibitions will be shattered, your faith will be tested, and your will shall be defined.

The most beautiful event will take place, and that is the chance to discover what you are made of. It is my belief that everyone in this town (and surrounding areas) will come to a crossroad where they will either turn coattail and run or stay to discover who they truly are. And, it is in the latter where your passions will come within your grasp and become something tangible.

It took me 2 years to tolerate this town, 3 years to start a career in my artform, 4 years to gain uncanny purpose, 6 years to love this place and 7 years to move into the area I’ve always wanted to reside…

but it was only 1 day to see the potential.

venni vetti vecci: my LA mantra and what I wish for all who call this place “home”.
