Fuchsia bougainvillea petals drifted down onto our table as we sat amid the calm swirl of the patio at the Bel Air….

a girl who looked a lot like Madonna was sitting two tables away with a young guy – wavy blonde/brown shoulder length hair – a long white cotton scarf knotted ever so sexually casual ….they had been lovers for a long time…..

I wondered what she texted ever so fastly on her pink I-phone when he left for the john…..

there is just something about the Bel Air that is so relaxing and enervating ….in the City but an oasis ….as you feel you are hundred of miles away …..
