My drive to take Manolo to the airport took me to Long Beach. It was unexpected. Manolo says the planes there get cable television. I'm sure he means satellite, but I did not correct him. For the drive home I was staring into the west, the sun glaming off the roofs of so many sedans. This is the catch of driving a Range Rover I suppose. By the way, mental note to ask my dealer how cold the in-dash refridgerator will chill beverages. I was feeling blue. I can write about it now because the feeling's somewhat passed. It's the little things that tax one the worst. I started to obsess over my lack of personal progress in the last year. Then I drove by a car dealership over which a large inflatable gorilla stood above two import sportcars. Just like my life, only replace the imports with art colony applications. Maybe a Sun Valley trip will bring a cheer to my cheek.
