I’m currently sitting in a bar on Hollywood Boulevard, looking out on to the street at sunset, two ciders ready next to me and I’ve just had one of the most exciting days of my life. Appreciating that that’s a pretty strong opening, I’ll go ahead and let you know that I can’t disclose much. But suffice to say, I’m grinning from ear to ear.
My morning started with the mistake of thinking I could walk from Hollywood to Beverly Hills for a meeting. Luckily I allowed two hours, and I still only just made it on time. That said, apart from the very, very long stroll, it was a nice day and I stopped at this really cool little café for breakfast where I got to experience the delight of a Nutella/banana sandwich. That put me in a great mood which pretty much set the tone for the rest of the day. First things first, I got in a room with a very exciting producer and some really cool prospects were thrown around. Then, as I resigned myself to the long walk back, I received an email that MAY put me on the road to realising a lifelong dream. Allow me to stress that nothing is set in stone here, but even the suggestion of where all of this may lead has me bouncing in my seat.
Tomorrow I have a couple more meetings and more the day after that, then, with barely a second of breathing time I’ll be flying back home. I’m taking a second now to relax and finish a short story I started writing last night inspired by my surrounds, but as soon as that’s done I have to start work on the aforementioned potential dream project thing. Things here have not let up for a second, and I’m loving it. If you’ve been following these blogs, you’ll remember that a few days ago I said I was ready to go home. I have never been more wrong.
