Venice Boulevard Pink
I drive the boulevards of Los Angeles daily, and sometimes I'll drive nearly the entire boulevard from west (the ocean) to east (my neighborhood). Yesterday, as I returned from the acupuncturist's office along Venice, I marveled at all the urban sights, my mindfulness ignited, perhaps, by needles. I stopped the car a couple of times and found a pink theme. Some might think of this as urban blight -- I found it beautiful.
This apartment building was nowhere near the water, much less an island, -- in fact, living on Venice Blvd., somewhere in the middle, seems pretty bleak to me, but with the large boat parked in front, I found it incredibly hopeful.
