Mountains and Meditation


I return from California refreshed. I went to some inspiring places.






Via LACMA, Portrait of Isaku Yanaihara

 One highlight: Lake Shrine








 Another highlight: Topanga State Park. Recommend.






Still, every sight can be an inspirational one, if you are really looking with care.















 A festive seasonal display:




I... don't have words for the West Hollywood Halloween Parade. I didn't get good pictures, either. It needs to be experienced.


Wedding, WeHo, Wild Things



A week on the West Coast began with a family wedding. Much to celebrate.







Then, to West Hollywood to see one of my favorite people for the favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN!!

 
Buddha pumpkin:




Buddha blonde?









Melrose Trading Post:






Often on this trip I thought of "Where the Wild Things Are." I saw monsters in the graffiti but also when I saw the exhibit on Chagall costumes at LACMA.
