Miscellaneous Photos

We were in downtown LA recently, walking around a bit and I snapped this shot. Angles, corners, fronds.

Recently I was at LMU to speak on a panel of women in the Biz. I walked by McKay dorm and had to take a picture of my former room (the circled one, duh.) It was a two bedroom suite with a shared bathroom. I shared one of the rooms room with Shana and we did our best to make it look like Ferris Bueller's room. Yes, it was 1986. Good times!

For Valentine's Day I made heart shaped cakes out of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Cookbook that my mom gave me in high school. (Oh, I'm a huge fan. Of the books. DO NOT talk to me about the tv show.) They came out not as well as I remembered making them before, but taking into account they would have been an amazing treat on the prairie in the 1870's, I didn't mind.

After Christmas as I was putting away the decorations, I dug out this incense coil from the back of the cupboard. I was surprised I still had it. I got it in December of 1999, when my step brother Gary died. He died suddenly (I mean literally fell to the floor and died) of heart failure on December 23. Tragic, shocking, quite unfair. Gary and his fiance, Carol, had an import business and they were bringing in all kinds of things from Asia, including these amazing coils. At Gary's memorial we had these hung outside and burning constantly. We took a bunch home to Maui and burned them there and I brought a bunch home to LA and burned them here. 

They last for about five days and I hung it in the backyard, thinking of him and of Jen.

After that tragic time, Carol moved on and is doing so beautifully in her own business called Red Egg

I would like to find more of these coils. Anyone know where I can get them in LA?
