banjo jam at the hollywood farmers market

WELL, we didn't come close to doing all the things i claimed we were going to this weekend... I mean, obviously. but who cares, right? I don't.

Instead we did things like go, for the first time in the 7 years that I've lived in LA, to the Sunday Hollywood Farmer's Market. Just the musicians alone made it worth the trip. That and the salted carmel ice cream.

I <3 this trio. They were so into their music, so soulful with their banjo and fiddling and old-timey music. I need to invent an excuse to have a party, next summer, in our backyard... so they can come play.

This is why you travel. Because then you come home and you look at your own city like a visitor and you again appreciate all the beautiful moments it has to offer. Plus for a thoroughly contented west-sider, going to Hollywood IS like traveling. We don't get out much.
