Week-end Getaway – Van Gogh, Kandinsky and the Dodgers


The weatherman tells me this week-end will be glorious. The skies will be clear and temperatures will be in the 90’s.  Our plan is to see the “Van Gogh to Kandinsky” exhibit at LACMA, then spend the remainder of our time by the pool and/or listening to Dodgers baseball on the radio.

Whatever your plans I wish you a lovely Saturday and Sunday!

Musings on Slim

image Vacation. One of the most lyrical words in our language, at least for me. It’s something to be anticipated and coveted. A chance to break free from the mundane and ordinary and embark on new adventures and a new way of living, if only for a few days.


On Monday I leave for vacation and I’m nearly counting the hours. Let me be clear. My idea of a wonderful vacation involves nothing more complicated than sitting by a beach or pool soaking in the warmth of the sun. My inspirations are Slim Aarons’ iconic “Poolside” photographs.


It’s just a short short drive up the coast but a world away from the various pressures of real life. Vacation, are you ready for me? Because here I come!
