It was 3am and I was awoken again by the raspy hacking cough of a tall skinny man lying on the beer stained carpet next to me . I wasn’t sure whether it was the acid, the dope or the cigarettes that caused the dude to retch up sputum like some kind of rumbling volcano.
Have you ever had a moment in life when you suddenly stopped the charade and asked yourself the time honored question, “how the f*#k did I get here? ”
Well, the more the dude coughed, the more I asked that question.
I mean I had been a Veterinary Surgeon working in plush clinics on the south coast of England less than five months earlier. How did I end up sleeping on that beer stained carpet in a sleazy one bedroom apartment in Burbank, California?
Faithfully following your dream, doesn’t guarantee you any kind of success, but it does promise you an adventure.
P:S: This is the first in a series of blogs chronicling my adventures in Los Angeles over the last 3 years.
