silverlake's walking man.

dr. marc abrams was a local fixture around silverlake. he would walk daily around griffith park blvd reading either a newspaper or book. he walked fast and he walked shirtless always wearing a pair of micro shorts. i read somewhere that he did 4,000 push-ups a day. he was only 58 years old but he will live on in the collective memories of those who got to witness him in action. from now on, when we're driving towards the dog park or trader joe's, a light will go on in our subconscious telling us that something is missing. that something will be, the walking man.
