The flowers that bloom in the Spring

When I first visited Boston it was in early April and it was cold and the trees were bare , this year I traveled in mid May and the trees were green and the flowers were in bloom.

I was strolling down the park one day in lovely month of May

I love staying in the Back Bay area of Boston! It's the one area in the town that was built on a grid. There is such a charming small town, yet European feeling about the town. The street are certainly small, don't know how people drive around the town without going insane. But a wonderful, wonderful town to walk around in! In Los Angeles you just don't walk around! You need a car or you are going NO WHERE! I also loved the architecture of the town. Took this shot while walking down Commonwealth Avenue Park.

The memorial garden

While walking down the Freedon Trail I came apond this site. The medal s of the dog tags rang slowly and I read the sign. It stated that this site was a memorial made of the dog tags of fallen soldiers of this current war. My heart broke for these brave men & women, who gave up their lives so we may keep our idea of freedom. This is a wicked war and we should end it soon, before more of these tags grace this memorial!

I was strolling through the park one day

One thing I LOVE about Boston; it was a great town to walk around in! I took this photo on a Sunday after walking along Commonwealth Park. It's a tiny strip of a park but a beautiful walk!

It's the end of the world as we know, it's the end of the world as we, it's the end of the world as we know, I feel find...

I have a friend who is a Jehovah's Witness that whenever we have a natural disaster or strange weather claims it's all a sign that the end of the world is near. Who knows, strange things are going on but then there has NEVER been a period in history where awful disasters or strange weather hasn't hit the world! At least I don't have to worry about my town being raided by Vikings!

But damn this is strange weather. Yesterday while driving down the 210 freeway through Pasadena hail stones fell so heavy that the Police shut down the on-ramps and I had to pull over to the shoulder for 15 minutes because I couldn't see clearly enough to drive. It's was scray. The sky lit up with flashes of lightening! It was amazing! I can't remember a time when it rain in the month of May! Last week while I was in Boston my mom said that there was a heat wave in the high 90s! Now it's a cold 60s. It's been gray and windy and feels like rain again.
There was in a reports of a tornado hitting a freeway in Riverside County! A tornado in California?

Maybe the end is near. But what can you do? I found the art work on this tombstone while in Boston very interesting. It has a dancing winges sheleton dancing over a skull with an hour glass next to it. Very amusing!

But can we do even if the end is near but dance like the image of Shiva dancing in a cosmic flames of an ever changing universe.

Grave yard in the Freedom Trail Boston

Who'll stop the rain?

I had planned on staying in Boston till Monday but I didn't want to travel on Memorial Day Weekend besides my shoulder is still killing me and I wanted to have a doctor look at it a.s.a.! I managed o change my flight and get a doctor's appointment on this Friday!

Now, I'm back in L.A. and we're having thunder storms! It's rather cool but I can't remember when I've ever seen lightening in the month of May. It was suppose to rain while I was in Boston but only rained late one afternoon while I was there. NowI'm home and it's raining! Weird!

This photo was taken while walking the Freedom Trail, it's one of the oldest graveyards in the United States. What surprised me most was the fact that the gravestones are so thin!

Walking the Freedom Trail was one of my favorite days, it was overcast, cool in the 60s and perfect for walking.

Boston is a beautiful town full of character and very lovely this time of year for so many flowers and trees were in bloom. More photos to follow. I'm in pain right now due to this shoulder.

Greetings from Bean Towne sorry no pictures...

Thanks for all the good wishes!

I'm really enjoying my stay here but wish I had wings for my feet are killing me. But this is a most enchanting town to walk around.

The weather has been beyound perfect! Today is was sunny and a warm 70 degrees. I walked along the Charles River where a lot of the natives were enjoying the sunshine as well. Being from Southern California I can't help but notice how pale the natives are. Then they don't get sunshine the way we do in California!

Yesterday it was raining but it was a soft gentle rain and rather fun to walk in as I walked from one fine museum to another through a beautiful park. But my feet were so swollen that I had to take a cab back to my hotel from the Boston Museum of Fine Art. I left my umbrella in the cab , RATS! I didn't even bother to open it while I was walking in the rain for I had a baseball cap on and really didn't need it.Still, more rain is due so I bought one in the hotel store which was far more pricey than an umbrella should be. But what can you do?

The yoga classes at the conferences are packed making taking a class feel like sardine yoga. The students are not a advance as the students in L.A. but that's due to the fact that there is a limit of teachers and studios out here I guess. Most the teachers at the conference teach in L.A. or come to a L.A. studio during the year to give workshops so a yoga students in L.A. can advance and improve their practice. Still, the people have been rather nice and it's always great out of a L.A. mode of thinking.

The women been asking me where I get my yoga clothes and I say I live in Los Angeles and they all say:' "That explains your cute outfits." Every studio in L.A. sell yoga wear and a lot of those are designed out in California as well. Makes me feel like the hip girl in high-school and believe me; I was far from the hip girl while I was in high-school!

Can't wait until I get back and will be able to post the photos I've taken of this lovely town!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

The old black magic ....

Well, tonight I'm taking the Red Eye and leaving the palm trees of Los Angeles for the city of Boston for two weeks. I'll be attending a yoga conference plus just enjoying the town. Boston is a cool town with baseball, great bars, fine art museums and the symphony what's not to like?

Anyone know any cool places I should eat or visit while I'm there?

I don't know how I'm going to do at the yoga conference though. I think a witch cast a spell on me for lately I've been so accident prone! Last week I pulled a muscle in my right shoulder making doing a chatarunga or upward facing dog very painful! My first class isn't until Friday, maybe it will be better by then.

I don't know if I'll be able to post for I'm not taking my laptop with me. I just not feel safe leaving my P.C. in a hotel room. It's a great hotel, the Sheraton at the Back Bay Area , still you know what they say: "Trust in God but don't forget to tie your camel."

Right answer , wrong proposition

Proposition 98 is about stopping rent control. Sorry K- I know that the there the our Governor wants to sell our public beach parks , such as Will Rogers State Park. Which I believe is Proposition 99 because Arnold want to build housing on it! So my answer is teh same NO! NO! NO! On both propositions! They use such Bull Shit as funding will go to education but DON'T believe this line of snake oil! They're greedy and want our money and our state parks!~

NO! On Proposition 98

Thanks K!

California has the most beautiful coast line , or at least in my opinion and most of it belongs to the people. Most are cared for by our Parks Department. But now due to our good actor Governor Arnold miss management of our tax funds , he says the State can't afford to care for these great beaches. BULL SHIT! He made his great fortune as a developer and wants to get his greedy hands on some of this gorgeous coast real estate and build condo and God knows what else! These building will block the view from the common person and give only the rich access to beaches that should be public! NOT ON MY WATCH! I hate Malibu for you can't see the beaches and have to know the secrets paths ways to get to the beaches! Our coast line should belong to all of us.
