If you’re like me and live on the outskirts of Los Angeles County and you have a meeting in downtown Los Angeles at any time in the morning, your safest bet to avoid traffic is to wake up way earlier than required and leave before 5:30 am. Although my meeting wasn’t until 10 am, I had a conference call prior that I needed to be situated for, so early was the best option.
I tried to make the best of it at sunrise by searching for an overlook on the city. The truth? I got a bit lost and this is where I wound up… staring back at the city from the top of Marview Avenue. About 10 minutes after I left his spot, a few clouds formed around the buildings and reflected the sunrise happening to my back. Once again, I was not patient. I may never learn.
