The day started with warm sunshine and ended with the kind of cold that Californian’s run from. I was shivering so much that I was tempted to go into a random store and buy anything to throw over me. That’s the thing about Los Angeles, you never know where the day will take you. Now that my sister lives in DTLA with her family, I make any excuse to visit them. But let’s be frank, I am obsessed with my nephews and so I would naturally visit them anyway. My nephews —like all of us, only get one childhood. I want them to remember that they were and will always be surrounded with a good amount of love. I hope they will have memories of my face lighting up whenever they walked into the room.
On this particular day, we headed out to Grand Central Market a landmark in Los Angeles (established in 1917) known for its diversity in cuisines and culture. It was a bit chaotic trying to make our way among a sea of people. But it was truly an amazing experience and it made me realize just how lucky I am to live among so much diversity. While some people fear heterogeneity, I feel we only grow richer in existence when we embrace those differences.
