For The LA TIMES: The Bridges of Los Angeles County


Click on the GIF for a link to the LA Times piece I wrote or here

One line talks about UK citizenship- it should be EU, as I have an Irish passport. The original title is “The Bridges of Los Angeles County”. The print version is called sadly: “Spans of Disappointment”. I see them as lessons about what I didn’t really want (hindsight) more than “disappointments”.

The digital title is now “I wonder who I’ll be kissing when the 6th Street Bridge is Rebuilt”- this is still out for consideration, as we have years til it’s done.
