Tower

For those of you who have been to Balboa Park in San Diego and heard the bells of the California Tower, this is a glimpse from where they emanate. One can now take a tour up into the Tower as part of the Museum of Man’s exhibits. The Tower is indeed a magical place, its interior just as beautiful and mysterious as I’d always imagined.

  • I posted this on Thursday Nov 12 (So Calif) time zone. My heart goes out to those in France who lost their lives or were injured on Friday Nov 13. Also the pain and cruelty inflicted on the families and friends. Try as we may, there seems to be more of such tragedies.

Looking up inside LACMA.

With the new Broad Museum’s opening in downtown Los Angeles, we here in California gained access to even more vibrant art. It’s always great seeing so much of my old friend Robert’s artwork so prominently displayed in LACMA, as well as the Broad.
