Spent most of the day talking to someone about Skid Row and my new project. It is amazing that a few months ago, it was just something I thought about everyday and kept it a secret. Gradually, I would mention it to people. Now it is in full blown planning stage. It is actually amazing. I thought it was so impossible to pull off. I kept plugging away. I kept talking about it and some people thought it was a great idea but did not want to do it.
I am living on skid row and finally, I found someone who wants to do it and he lives on Skid Row. As you all know, it is Don Garza.' The Towncrier. I have been doing my part, thinking about this project, preparing and discussing it with whomever I can who knew about it a long time ago. Don wants it mums the word. I am bursting at the scene.
I want feedback from cyberspace as to what they feel would work. Don says no. NOt now.
He makes much sense but It is killing me.
How do we make money from it? Hell if I know. lol. Writing a business plan for this would take serious thought and creativity no matter how much of a winner I believe it is. It is time for something like this.
I am trying to keep quiet and t rying to learn about things. I believe it will be fun and will change alot of things. big words for someone from Skid Row to say. Big words for someone who did drugs for years to say. Well, those two things and vision are not mutually exclusive.
People are laughing outside on Skid Row tonight.
A few hours ago I sat on the 6th floor of a building and looked east to the river. It was the first time I ever saw that view of Los Angeles. I saw a few different views of Los Angeles today. Very interesting. I never would have had the experiences had not a negative experience been in my life. funny how things work.
I am going upstairs. I just wanted to say hello. Oh yes, Downtown Los Angeles, through its blogging community, does give itself a small town cozy feeling. I like that.
