My Love for Austin

    Dear Hollywood LIT Retreaters!

    So… for now, I have transitioned to Austin, TX… My love for Austin goes back to 2006 when I arrived for the first time on a book tour and fell in love with the town.  It was the warmth of the subtropical air, the permeating fun and authentic vibe of the town becoming a city and the incredible politeness of everyone.  At that time, I discovered Rainey Street in its early days of glory.  I then lived on Rainey from 2015 through 2016 in its heyday.  I have now returned as an Austinite and discovered that covid changed both me and Rainey… so this time, I have chosen to live on Lake Travis in Lago Vista (the Malibu-like section of Austin).  It is beautiful and green and I am looking forward to the lake life with downtown nearby on demand.  I stumbled on this short TEDx talk and realized it is not just one’s closet but the rooms we live in; change your room, change your life.  Please stay tuned… as Hollywood LIT Retreat re-orgs and starts doing events again in Austin and LA… In the meantime, hope you enjoy this TEDx talk: Change Your Closet, Change Your Life | Gillian Dunn | TEDxWhiteRock

    Warmly, Lynn
