After all that traveling, and after, really, a year away - with just short visits back - let's start celebrating why it's so good to be back in LA. First: quality time with the cats. Here's Moth.
Second - the natural habitat - here's a walk in Griffith Park, up behind our house.
And finally, the surreal world of Los Angeles. Yesterday evening, we wondered what the strange red and white blob on the hillside was. Binoculars revealed - as did our walk - that it was a huge, inflatable, mylar Santa. He seemed to have been rescued (or to have flown off again) by this evening - he was a curiously unseasonal sight.
