My Dear Emma,
It’s strange the things you find when you’re not looking for them.
I’ve been drifting through my own life, cut off from feeling for others or letting them feel for me. I wasn’t looking for anyone to snap me out of this lonely existence—or didn’t realize I was—until I met you. And what a curious person to bring all this to light. You go through life at a distance from those around you. It’s ironic, or maybe fitting, that we’d get close to no one. Except maybe each other.
The difference is, you do it by choice. And I can’t think of a sadder reason to love someone than because they also cannot truly love. And yet…well, maybe those aren’t the words for a letter.
You may be my only chance to feel again, to fill this void where I can never be sure a heart did once beat, and wonder if I might be your only chance to tear down those walls you’ve built around yourself. But if it is, my greatest wish is that we be together.

The Creators of LA: Alie & Georgia
For the last 10 months, self-taught photographer Megan McIsaac has been traveling the West Coast in an RV — a 1977 Toyota “Dolphin” — and gathering portraits of friends and creative types she met along the way. Now settled in Los Angeles, with a Mamiya c330 camera, McIsaac decided to document the community that’s inspired so much of her work: Tumblr. This is the first in an occasional series of photographic profiles.Alie & Georgia
Once I moved to Los Angeles, it was hard to look past Alie and Georgia, the sweet lady duo behind the Cooking Channel’s new web series, “Classy Ladies With Alie & Georgia.” The two women are best friends turned cocktail connoisseurs, and can always be found at the best local bars in their beautiful vintage frocks.What’s your favorite cocktail concoction of the moment?
Alie: I personally love 1) Bad puns 2) drinking vegetables 3) blending the fuck out of things. We just made a blended drink called a “Can’t Beet a Gin-ger Fizz” and it’s earthy and spicy and herby and I love it.
