Once in a while we have to dance in the dream.
If only to pay attention.

I guess we need the darkness to appreciate the Light.
Glad to feel the sunshine again.


We saw a fascinating exhibit called Inventing Race at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

We were lucky enough to arrive just after a docent had begun a guided tour. If you get a chance, it's well worth the visit. Especially, if you too are fascinated by the our tendency to stratify people by how they look. We seem to be very inventive in attempting classifying our differences.

I heard about this exhibit on PBS and it caught my attention. My BA from UCLA is in Anthropology with a minor in Sociology. Never used any of this, but remain interested. Funny what we humans do to make ourselves feel superior..

Later, we drove over to M & M's house. Confused as usual, I didn't remember that LACMA is not in Exposition Park. So, I told Mike that since we would be so close, we would stop by after the exhibit. Thank God, Pete always seems to know where we are going. If I had been driving, we would have been very disappointed to end up at the wrong museum.

We got to Mike & Michele's just at the right time. We were given a terrific dinner ... homemade pasta, smoked brisket, and wonderful green beans. Topped off with popsicles and Licorice Ice Cream. I promised myself last time that I wouldn't eat this great tasting desert again. Stuff happens after you eat this stuff. I now sport a black tongue. I won't mention the rest.

The girls, as usual, were as wonderful as ever.
Good Day.

1. Len's back.
He shared a poem.
Did you know that yesterday was "Poem on your blog" day?

2. Researchers have stepped closer to finding effective treatments for Lung Cancer. Exciting studies are showing success in treating a certain type of Lung Cancer, even after metastasis. I heard that 1 in 7 lung cancer patients have a form of the disease which is treatable with the drug Iressa.

3. Shakespeare by the Sea will stay at Point Fermin Park in San Pedro. Things looked dismal for a while when city budget cuts were forcing the city to discontinue the practice of waving fees to nonprofit groups. This years schedule begins Thursday, June 17th. The players will be performing at other area parks as well. Look Here:

4. Yesterday, the Soyus space capsule touched down safely bringing a Russian, an American and a Dutchman back from the international space station. We are still exploring.
