After sleeping in that fitly nasty community housing facility for 2 weeks, then sleeping on the floor of my acting theater for about 5 nights (Shsss! Keep that on the low low!). I now have my own single bed studio apartment. Okay... Let me not exaggerate. It’s not exactly a studio apartment. It’s a motel but to me it’s heaven. This is just one of the great unexpected blessings that has been bestowed to me this week.

While I was rehearsing, I made a few calls and just after I got on the phone about 25 yards ahead of me was Danny walking. Ironically, I saw him the day before leaving the train as I was entering. He was on the escalator going up and I was on escalator going down. I didn't make myself noticeable because I didn't want to miss my train plus he seemed very focused. Today I felt lead to approach him. Awkwardly trying to manage the phone conversation, while running with my script in my hand, I got his attention.

This is beyond an amazing story for a man who has been homeless, and spending long days in random cafes and restaurant establishments. I’m straight balling right now. This is actually my very first place with privacy in LA. I spent the majority of my time in LA on a living room futon. 3 weeks ago, I was on the top bunk of a twin size bed. Last week I was on the floor of you know where. Now I’m sleeping on a full size bed with super basic cable and my own bathroom. This is great and I’m loving it. Most importantly I can stretch out and get stuff done. Now I don’t have to leave Starbucks when it close. I can keep on grinding. Plus their is a library across the street and I'm able to pick of their Wi-Fi signal. How great is that?
