I had the opportunity to escape from the Mojave last weekend to attend the BIL Conference down in Long Beach. It was a nice break. I got to see some cool talks, meet some new friends, and sit barefoot on a beach beside a vast ocean which I had all but forgotten even existed.
Not bad for two days.
I just wish I could have stayed longer. Returning to the High Desert was like traveling back in time: it felt like spring in LA, but it was still winter in the Mojave. Cold and windy.
