Busting My Flow

by Jennifer Jensen June 15, 2015

Ugh... Developing my site has taken a back seat to dealing with two huge flow busters; Injuries and LAPD.  

In late February, just as I was feeling some traction with my web development chops, I was hit by an uninsured motorist.  It knocked me off my game hardcore.  Physically and financially wrecked, I had to turn my sights on to making immediate cash.  Eternal thanks are due to my Galleries, Doctors and Family for the support and getting me back on my feet!

LAPD continues to bust my flow soul deep.  It is currently illegal to sell or use dance hoops on the Venice Boardwalk.  Yes, ridiculous but true, the current L.A.M.C. Ordinance 42.15 governing what can and can't represent on the west side of the walk states that everything must be of nominal utility.  Nothing useful.  Fine Art (paintings, sculpture and photography) Only.  A brief stroll there now shows that this rule is not for everyone.  Why certain jewelers, musicians & myself have been singled out, I do not know.  From 2011 through August 2014, I set up shop anyway.  I was given 3 tickets for violating the ordinance.  A very messy situation indeed.  In response, I have tried to work with my fellow community members in the Ocean Front Walk Free Expression Advisory Group to work with the LAPD and Councilman Bonin's office.  Still trying.  

All that aside, I'm getting my groove back.  Thank you for your patience!!!
