Amy had a 9-5 job, the matching 401k, a home, and then it all vanished in 2008. The economy crashed and she got laid off. Amy did what any nonsensical person would do, she packed her bags and moved across the country to California alone, to embark on a journey no one could have ever prepared her for. At first, she tried to go backwards into what was comfortable; a corporate job, but instead she got sick.
Her healing journey became a gateway toward a sea of penniless artists, breaking her out of a conservative mold, leading her down a path of self-discovery in a tiny L.A. studio apartment. Penniless & broke, she became intrigued with the penniless sitar players, stepping into the “uncomfortable”. She joined what she called the LA underground and became privy to a world that no one ever writes or talks about – it is the land of the artists. Each sitar player she met was a new world waiting to be explored.
