One of my favourite places in the world is California. I’ve been there many times, and despite mud slides, drought, floods, canyon fires, freeway angst, sprawl, overpopulation etc. – it still shines brightly. <PHOTO ABOVE – 6:30 am, sunrise over Palm Desert>
I’m standing in front of Robert Therrien’s ‘Under The Table’ at the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, Grand Avenue South, Los Angeles. The Broad is LA’s newest art attraction – lineups every day.
Two Canada Geese drop in for an (unwelcome) visit.
Norm’s, a California institution – like Fran’s in TORONTO
Windmill farm, Palm Springs, off Interstate 10
Testing Santa Monica’s brand new lightrail (LRT) transit system
