I woke up early
and went downtown
to the flower district
i wanted to get a enough flowers
to help brighten up the rehearsal space
we are in for the week as its a bit....
that is to say
if my band were rehearsing there
we'd be more than stoked
(actually, Leonard kinda likes it)
it's eclectic and funky
but the flowers i think will brighten the joint up a bit
then i had to run out to LAX and pick up the wonderful Javier Mas!!
his flight got in almost 40 minutes early
(good thing i was an hour early)
still, i didn't realized his flight was early
until he had already been
on the ground for almost 20 minutes
in this industry, this can be trouble
needless to say, i was overjoyed (seriously)
to meet the great Javier Mas in person
What a wonderful and joyful man!!
he is like a favorite uncle or grandfather
he spotted me before i spotted him
(remember he had no idea what i looked like)
and was calling out my name in think Castilian accent!
and when i approached him he gave me the biggest hug!!
we are fast friends and discussed food
music and LA traffic on the way back to the apartments
