The guilt, the guilt. I haven't written in a while and it's mostly because I'm scared.

Not scared, really. Just busy.

I have been having a fantastic time here in Los Angeles. First of all, it's not raining! It rained for a day last week but I got the feeling that it was more for show than anything. Honestly, I wasn't impressed.

The album has been on hold since before Thanksgiving. We're resuming work today...It's the last turn before the homestretch. I'm excited to get back in there.

I've been getting to know the locals. There is a genuine soul beneath the concrete-crusted exterior of this place. I've seen lots of shows and all of them have been good. The songwriter scene is strong here, and very creative. People are friendly to each other and remember each other's names. People are excited to ask about each other's projects, and happy to talk about their own.

I like where I'm living quite a bit. It's cozy. Also, I found a late-night taco truck that parks itself a couple of blocks away and serves amazing carne asada tacos to people coming home from work or the bars. It's all I can do to keep myself from going there 20 times a day...

That's all for now.
