December 30




Late this afternoon we visited the newly-reopened Griffith Observatory. They've done a good job of maintaining the old and familiar while expanding and adding new displays. We were treated to a lovely sunset while there. We'll go back again in the summer and hopefully get into the planetarium this time.

Also, this morning Yvette and I completed walks 5 and 6 from Walking L.A. They are both very short so we did a two-fer. The former circumnavigates a two-block housing tract in Mar Vista designed by modernist architect Gregory Ain in the 1940s. Pretty cool. The latter is at the Ballona Wetlands in Playa Vista. You can see photos of both walks here.

Good morning Hashi,

I've seen you several times on Matthias Ink, but this is the first time I've visited.

What a pleasure to read through several posts of your blog. So much positive and happy energy radiates from it! I will have to read more before I really discern all the flavors. But this morning, you have made my insomnia totally worth the inconvenience.

My favorite is the series of cracker hat photos. I am of the same tribe.
