The Nicest Words

“It’s good to see you, as always.”

“You’ll be missed.”

“Welcome home.”

These are the nicest words to hear.

These are some of the nicest words ever said to me.

These are the words spoken out of the mouths of Angelenos.

“Hey pretty girl. How’s your day?”

“Have a blessed day.”

“Jah bless.”

These are also some of the nicest words to hear, some of the nicest words ever said to me.

These are the words spoken out of the mouths of the Rastafari.

“Good job.”

“I appreciate you.”

“God was smiling down on me the day you got fired from your last job.”

These are words I never thought I would hear at work.

These are words I always wished would be said to me.

These are the words spoken out of the mouth of the best boss I’ve ever had.

Los Angeles may not be all sunshine and palm trees; reggae music may not be all peace and love; and the independent music industry may not be all Hollywood glamour…

…But they provide more sunshine, palm trees, peace, love, smiles and rainbows than I have ever experienced before.
