My goal for 2011 was to find inspiration daily: for myself, for my work, for everything else I do. I think I’ve been doing a good job of that so far. (See variations of such attempts on Tumblr, Pinterest, and the new blog.)

Another goal I had was to still post about things that I’ve managed to fall in love with while I am living outside of Los Angeles. A long-distance guide to living, loving, making and shopping in L.A., if you will. I am only remembering this now, here in oppressively gray Washington, while I am looking at the softly sun-bleached downtown L.A. goodness in the photographs of Carmen Chan. Shot on film! Be still my heart.
