I wanted to take you to Venice Beach, California and introduce you to some of the very interesting people I’ve met along the boardwalk over the past year. One in particular, I can’t remember his name, but he did this thing with a knotted cloth or rope, where he would close his eyes and swing it around, standing perfectly still – almost like a lasso-artist (if there is such a thing). When I decided to introduce myself and inquire about his deal, he informed me that he closed his eyes so he could meet his “friend” and do battle together. They were practicing what he called Vector Dynamics. Let me say, I looked that up. It’s real. Well, Vector Dynamics is. I don’t know what goes on in that guy’s head, and just how real THAT is. I can’t speak to that issue! Ha! Ha! I thought by the way the guy was talking he seemed off-the-charts intelligent. He was. He said most people in his life, professors and family had told him he was a genius. He was also schizophrenic – and since he didn’t have an actual residence, was unable to get medication at the free clinic on the beach. Sad.
When Fred and I walked the boardwalk yesterday, we couldn’t find Vector guy, but we found plenty of other interesting folks. And here is my summary:
1. Venice Beach is way cool. I am not cool enough for that place.
2. You will notice, and I hate that I feel compelled to say this, but uhm – I dressed down for this – okay? No glam stuff here. As a matter of fact, you may not even recognize me. HA! But it was fun.
3. Watch it for yourself, and give us YOUR summary, why don’t you?[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upKX39J0POM]
After viewing this, I hope you can go out there and have a TOTALLY COOL weekend boys and girls! I am off to Albuquerque, New Mexico for yet another adventure!
Love you people! Mmmmmmmphhhhuuuhhhhhh!
