It's been a while since I've thrown anything up on my blog; living out of suitcases, a storage unit and the back of my truck has taken a toll.
I didn't have much of a plan to start with; basically "Go West Old Man, Go West" or "Jonny Venice, Come Home" or "There's lots of work out here, the ocean, you're old stompin' grounds and long-time friends"; ironically not many of my "long-time friends" are still in Los Angeles; the ocean is still here thank goodness, but the town has certainly changed. This town has always been changing, but some things I didn't see coming, at least not in the magnitude I imagined.
The homeless situation is out of control. And it's not just tent cities and guys living under the freeway in cardboard houses. It's the caravans of campers and motorhomes that are parked all over the city, especially along the coast. It's incredible and depressing at the same time.
On a different note and to address the title of the post; was anything supposed to happen on 02 19 2019?
Jon Danniells is an adventurer and traveler, a teacher and student, a husband and a father, a cook and a farmer, a "week-end warrior" (very amateur athlete) and has not earned any money on these labors of love.When I googled myself what showed up first was my IMDB listing, which is basically a resume for my 20 and then some year career in film, for which I fortunately do get paid.
