I'm reactivating my Los Angeles Listener Blog mostly as a personal mental exercise. I did get some decent hits after doing about a hundred posts. But I never had any idea who was reading it and never got any comments or email. But I enjoy doing it, so with this post it's back up.
There is just soo much to report and write about, listening as I drive around LA and the OC transporting blood and tissue for the lab I work for. So if someone reads this blog and is moved to check out something I like or shares in my outrage about something...good.
Having had a big change in my life recently I feel more clear headed, healthier and wanting to write. My schedule has flipped. No longer am I up late at night (except for tonight). I'm now a morning person. Getting a lot of great sleep and up listening to talkradio in the morning and reading online. Trying to limit my exposure to the horrible news but can't completely avoid it.
I'm trying to curb my anger about things but am still passionate about things I like and things I don't. I'm compelled to write about it, its cathartic, but I do often ruffle feathers and lose people. The truth hurts and sometimes I'm out of line....I know that.
I'm gonna try to make it a simpler and shorter blog that people can read quickly with bracketed sections podcasts: on the road: this day in history: non-sequitur: humor:...........
I left facebook a few months ago and will not be returning anytime soon (regularly). Thanks to everyone who has asked about me. I will post a link to this blog on facebook as I write them. All my contact info will always appear at the end of every post. Please comment, love to hear it.

  1. So good to see you posting here, JP! Don't feel bad about not getting any comments on your blog, I don't get very many either, but I can see it's being read. People just don't comment much anymore. Looking forward to reading about what you're up to once again! Dorothy
