We are all in some way or another walking up Reseda Blvd. someday to die

We celebrated President's'' Day by hiking around Caballero Canyon. It's one of those not-very-well-planned loop trails that has an unenjoyable section along a street. In this case, a steep upward slope along Reseda Blvd. past characterless tract home McMansion enclaves with snooty names and fountains at their gateway.

A section of the hike is also along Mulholland Drive, but since it's part of the unpaved section that's closed to cars, that's perfectly okay. Most of the hike takes you deep enough into the wilderness that you can't tell you're in Outer Tarzana. It was a bit cool out, but nice to wander about in the green. A few flowers and blossoms here and there, and an incredibly cute and incredibly shy bunny. photos

Janitors and security guards pay higher tax rate than the millionaires living in the Helmsley Building in NYC.

I like to support the arts in my 'hood, but Beacon Arts' latest communique mentions an 'Experimental music bagpiper'.

Spammers on my LJ are getting to be a problem. Don't they know everyone's left LJ for FB? Anyway, may have to close off anon comments.
