Early morning

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category: , , ,
I have to be up by 5:00 AM every morning in order to get ready for my commute. It's not as if I work that far away, but in LA traffic you just have to learn to maneuver your way from the 134 to the 101 to the 405 and pray you get to work in an hour and a half. My office is about five minutes from the beautiful beaches of Santa Monica. Fifteen from Venice Beach and twenty from Manhattan Beach. I can't complain because it is a really interesting and buzzing area. All the bars and restaurants are great and if you have a date it can be pretty romantic to walk the 3rd Street Promenade or the Boardwalk and watch the sun set.

As I was driving through the residue of last night's storm, I realized how beautiful everything looks after the rain. The tinge of grays and blues and sprinkles of green is breathtakingly beautiful. It's hard not to fall in love with the emotions these colors evoke. At first glance I thought this was going to be a gloomy day, but as I took in my surroundings in its entirety I realized that these moments are often missed by those who are too busy to stop and see the true beauty of their surroundings. I'm glad I took the time to enjoy my commute instead of letting the daily stresses take hold. There's plenty of time for work, but moments like these pass swiftly by if we don't open ourselves to it.

Alright, I'll come out of the shadows. It's not easy, but here goes...

[ahem] Hi there. My name's ______ , and I'm a man who's reading the blog of an erotic romance author.

That wasn't so bad, actually. Kind of liberating!

I'm kidding, of course. I think that if more men read erotic romance (actually, if more men read), we, our women and our sex lives would be better for it.

A toast to Jax and her fellow writers for making our lives a little more erotic, one chapter at a time. ;-)

Thanks HE for showing yourself. For you wonderful people out there, you should check out his kick-ass blog!

It's always a difficult process to come out of the shadows. A lot of my friends read my daily ramblings but they never comment on the blog. They just call me up and bring up the topic of my daily topic. Harumpf. Now I look like I have no friends or traffic. The truth is that I'll keep rambling no matter who reads just because it's a way to procrastinate when I should be WRITING! Cheers!
