Lot 48: Missing L.A.

Missing L.A.

Los Angeles is the love of my life.  True story.  I dream about that city all the time.  I think about that city all the time.  I fantasize about it all the time.  I have never felt so at home in a city before so quickly.  In fact, I have never felt so at home in a city before.
I miss passing Hollywood Blvd, Universal Studios, and the Hollywood Bowl on my way to work.  I miss the sunshine.  I miss the warm weather.  I really don't like the cold.  I miss working at a production company and being involved in the most exciting industry in the world.  I miss reading scripts all day and giving my opinions on them.  I miss driving around LA trying to find a director's house to deliver a script.  I even miss running silly errands for the executives.
I miss driving to my boss' house to pick him up for work because he would be too hungover to drive.  I miss pretending to go the kitchen to get a snack when famous people came into work for meetings just so I could see them in person.  I miss my apartment and the trees that filled the complex.  Everything was so exciting there.  Never a dull moment.
I miss my friends and my ward.  I miss things happening to me everyday that made for a good story.  I miss being inspired.  It's hard not to be inspired when you live there.  Everyday I got a new idea for a TV show or story line or movie.
But it's not the right time to move back.  Every time I think about it, I get a really bad feeling.  It's just not right, it's not the right time.  But oh how I miss that place.  My friends probably get annoyed because I talk about it so much.  I should probably stop talking about it so much in order to keep my friends.
But I'll move back someday.  When the time is right.  Until then I will just keep writing and trying to improve as a writer.
I do know that I can never visit.  Because if I visit, that means I will have to leave, and I cannot handle leaving that city ever again.  Leaving the first time was hard enough.  I'm not going to do that again.
What's your city that you love the most?
