Film Maker/ProducerLauren Malkasian recently sent us this email:
“We love your daily inspirations and have very much been taken, moved and forever changed by ‘the improvised life’; it’s like a magic tonic everyday. So here is a little something from us, all the way from LA, that we thought you might enjoy.
We live on a street just out side Griffith Park. Our house is set on a hill and our daughter along with most of the kids in our neighborhood have little or no yard space to play in so she came up with this…Take a couple of street cones (she scavenged from some street workers who left them behind after a job) and a jump rope to make an impromptu net…
All you need after that is two rackets and ball and presto…street tennis.
As soon as a car comes each of the two players grabs a cone and scoots off to the side of the road. It’s that simple!”
