Some Things That Are Nice in Venice at 6:45am

  1. The colors in the sky.
    There are many of them and they are nice to look at.
  2. The overall demeanor of those awake.
    At worst, groggy. At best, quietly happy to be enjoying the early morning.
  3. Traffic.
    What traffic?
  4. The dense marine fog.
    Like Sleepy Hollow, CA Edition. Love it.
  5. Whole Foods parking lot.
    Ghost town. Not for long.
  6. The thawing morning chill.
    In Southern California, that counts as weather.
