Glendale Noir

The rain is slashing outside. 
An unexpected storm has hit.
Thank goodness for the Hippievan!

And thank goodness for my friend Tim, who is so graciously allowing me to live and work in his classic ’70s VW van, rent-free. It’s a tight fit, with my computers, printers, client files, sketchbooks and art books tucked in all the corners.

But I’m managing just fine. There’s no space for a conference table, but it’s easy to walk to Starbucks on Pacific, and meet with clients there. They have no idea the Hippievan is my new home!

Now that the rainstorm has headed east, I’m getting some good vibes. Business is going to improve soon even though last year’s revenues were horrible, and I had to give up my fancy office.

But who needs an expensive designer loft when you can live perfectly well in a classic van, even without a bathroom? I am positive business will improve soon. Positive.*
