We made it! And we seem to have landed in a Dwell magazine in Venice Beach. By total coincidence, our hosts are German and we have the run of their guest house, which is…gorgeous and cozy. Why yes, that is the view from my desk and a garage door that opens our entire space onto a private patio with a hammock.

As Anthony said, somehow we’ve been transported to an alternate universe where the sun shines all the time and we have an amazing sound system throughout our entire house. And it is very conducive to working—something we need to do a lot of now that we are semi-settled again.
