Ice Skating At L.A. LIVE

L.A. LIVE is an entertainment complex located in downtown Los Angeles, across from the Staples Center. During the holiday season L.A. LIVE is home to the beautifully lit outdoor Kings Holiday Ice rink.  This year the rink opened  Nov. 24  and closed Jan. 2.

On New Year’s night, I went skating with family.  My sisters and cousin left with ice on their heads and backs because they started a war with my brother. It’s not smart to throw ice at guy that can out skate you, even if you guys out number him.

Skating is always fun, especially before the ice gets crowded. I learned to do a twirl, so I left happy. I should have recorded the dozens of people falling and made a Youtube video… maybe next year.

Life of Pi

Happy New Year! I rang it in at the movie theatre watching Life of Pi.

Did I like it? Yes! The film is literally gorgeous. I am not crazy about 3D, but this was pretty awesome. Aside from it being easy on the eyes, it had an incredible story to match. Fantasy or not, Pi’s journey is captivating and inspirational.

The fact that I could (unexpectedly) relate to many themes covered in the film reeled me. Struggle, faith, love, friendship, family, spirituality, travel and independence are all relevant themes in my life.

Starting this year watching Life of Pi was my first good decision of 2013. Stayed tuned as I share my journey.
