Just a few steps removed from the busier parts of the city/county, Patch of Heaven Sanctuary is our secret garden. The grounds are immaculate, and the flowers, plants, wildlife, butterflies, and every other living thing on property look wildly content. As they should be. I can’t imagine the time and effort it took to bring this otherworldly oasis to life.… Read More Patch of Heaven Sanctuary
… please, all the gods, see fit to grant me a home along this enchanted coastline one day. Like, this week. 🦋
Before leaving for NYC, more than one person told me I HAD to see the High Line. They were right. The genius behind the creation of a park and green space where once there was just more of the same dull, gray cityscape… is clearly beyond (genius).

It’s also hugely gentrified in some parts and crowds the skyline with industry, home to Fort MacArthur AFB… and the perfect backdrop… Read More San Pedro
Today’s wandering brought me to an awesome, local sanctuary (for humans and animals alike): the Venice Canals (as written about beautifully by the LA Times).
