This is turning into such a busy week that it's a small miracle that I even remember the existence of cameras, let alone that I can find time to download an image. Thinking and writing is asking a little too much. But - I want to share the effects of rain on the landscape outside, which has been so brown for so long. Looking good - this is the view from the big balcony off the living room, and it's just such a miracle to me that this is within - what? - twenty minutes drive, max, from downtown LA.
