What are your favourite things about your new neighbourhood?

This is my first time living in any of the hills in LA and it’s a really cool change. It’s a totally different soundscape, especially. Way more birds. Little bit windier (the windchimes are all very happy). And the quiet hum of the freeway down below. Not to mention the view of the city approaching sunset! I don’t know what it is about distant green hills with a light wash of late day sunlight, do you? It’s good. It’s a magical, cellular thing, I think. It is like a sigh suspended in landscape form. Then, a few nights ago, I was walking home a bit on the late side and encountered a lone coyote. He kept his eyes on me for quite a while. That was new and rather special.
