The sun finally came out today and our flowers are starting to emerge too. This is our first Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile) to bloom this year.

Hope you enjoy!

Through A Glass, Darkly...

My view of the LA Basin...

My husband and I were on our way home from lunch out, and we were driving down a fairly steep hill. We could see across the LA basin, all the way to the San Gabriel Mountains. Now and then we get a pretty view like today's.

Back in the 50's, 60's and into the 70's, the clear view across the basin was rare. Smog choked our view as well as our lungs. The really bad days meant that you could smell the smog. We don't, any more.

But now the gov't is trying to reverse our progress. They want to take us back to those horrible days when lung diseases were rampant and many people died from breathing dirty air. Of course, people still die from our polluted air--but not as many as in decades past. The gov't. says that the rules for clean air hamper business and hurt employment. That's a load of shit.

We have worked very hard and have had some success, but there's still a lot of work to be done to make our air cleaner. And these yahoos want to derail it.

We aren't looking to go backwards. We have enough problems here without any efforts of the part of the Republicans to stop us, and send us back into the filthy air of the past. We don't need their intransigence.

We have a lot of cleaning up to do......and not just the air here in our basin.

Full Moon, tonight, April 29, 2018.

It had just risen in the SSE, behind and partially obscured by my giant rubber tree. A couple of the photos have indistinct shadows, and those are from the tree. Hope you enjoy!

Tonight I got down to the beach, hoping that the skies would be beautiful...

They were OK, but not like last night........but I did get some shots of the sunset and one of the moon that I was pleased with.

Amazing Sunset Tonight...

Seize the day.............live in the moment!

My good friend WCGreen felt and lived this way, all his life. Since he was chronically ill, he had to, if he wanted to live at all. He died young, but his life had been full in many ways that those of us stuck in our little grooves never experience. He taught me so much about living!

He is gone, but his influence on me goes forward. I have learned how to get out of my oh-so-comfortable rut and live life on the edge!

Thanks for your great post, my dear Stuart G. It's a good one, and now it's on the Greatest Page, where more people will see, and benefit from it.
