Being Rich

Being rich is ordering so many books from Amazon (new, half price and, unbelievably, one cent plus shipping) that when you come home after an endless week of work, not knowing which book it'll be while Bill Evans plays on Napster, eating Trader Joes sausage and potatoes while "The Godfather" (muted) plays on Bravo with The New Yorker still unopened &, at some point, after a night of photography, somewhere, [Los Angeles under a nearly full moon], something from Netflix.

Malibu Lagoon Before The Fire

Of course there's no comparing the rumored loss of a small lagoon to the loss of lives and homes in Malibu and San Diego but nevertheless these are some photos I took of the lagoon early Saturday morning, October 6, 2007.

At My Desk With Coffee ( #16)

The above is a large section of my mechanic's security gate. I believe its corten steel, often used by sculptor's for the beautiful way it rusts as it ages.

Meal of the Week: Chicken with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.

Hidden Treasures

My very talented and industrious sister-in-law has a new website of handmade jewelry that you should check out.

Hidden Treasures has dozens of bracelets, necklaces, rings and gift boxes - just in time for Christmas.

Yes, it's in Chinese but if you see something you like (scroll down each page to see larger images of each item) let me know and I'm sure we can work something out.

Los Angeles River (at Frogtown)

I know this shot is not unlike "At The Pier (Again)" but enlarge it anyway.

I'm enjoying:
  • (again) the total chaos of "Dig!", the documentary on The Brian Jonestown Massacre;
  • Trader Joe's Pomegranate Juice with Green Tea (diluted with Dr. Emoto water);
  • Homemade macaroni and cheese.
I'm regretting the shot I didn't get very early this morning around Eighth and Hoover of a young man holding a Bible with the sun glinting off the gold edge of the pages.
