In January, I moved from a comfortable house in Pasadena and risked everything to start working for a remarkable luxury rehab in Malibu. It paid way off and everything since followed similar, epic grandeur.
I now live in Topanga. According to my Google Location History, this year included more than 50,000 miles traveled; 3 countries, 4 new American states, and three separate trips to New York City. Also, Mexico, Arizona, London, New England.
I sold two websites. A respectable amount of freelance writing saw the light of day, most of it science and technology-related, and I told a colorful story to a small crowd. Shook innumerable hands, made immeasurable love, broke and had broken various hearts.
Naturally, any writer worth his salt is supposed to show, not tell, but the many facts of this year are borderline unmentionable, while the simple truth of it all is far more plainly said.
The money was ok, the friends were better, and the prospects continue to rise. It all felt like a rouse, and I was obviously in on it.
Joyfully, killing it daily. - ZU
