Visiting a public garden, on a cold and sunny day can not only be invigorating, as far as the almost two-mile walk, but can also be visually rewarding, especially when flowers are still blooming.
I love looking upward through the trees, while walking, and this photo shows me doing just that.
Some of the earth beyond the gateway to the seedling flats are showing some buds and young plant growth. I also liked the shadows in the foreground.
The photo above looks as if it is just dirt…well it is…but it is also a dirt path within the public garden. I liked how the golden leaves illuminated each side of the path.
I love archways, gazebos, and gateways, and liked the visual the photo above presented to me while walking.
I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.
Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.
My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
The path runs straight between the flowering rows,
A moonlit path, hemmed in by beds of bloom,
Where phlox and marigolds dispute for room
With tall, red dahlias and the briar rose.
‘T is reckless prodigality which throws
Into the night these wafts of rich perfume
Which sweep across the garden like a plume.
Over the trees a single bright star glows.
Dear garden of my childhood, here my years
Have run away like little grains of sand;
The moments of my life, its hopes and fears
Have all found utterance here, where now I stand;
My eyes ache with the weight of unshed tears,
You are my home, do you not understand?

I hope to get to the Skirball Cultural Center soon, to see the Voices and Visions Exhibit, which runs through March 17, 2013.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has an interesting sounding exhibit entitled Stanley Kubrick.
I am in the midst of reading The Conversation, by Joshua Golding. The novel is a little over 500 pages long, and I am totally engrossed and fascinated by the content of the story. I am almost finished reading it.
I have a review to edit and eventually post on the book entitled Journey to Heaven: Exploring Jewish Views of the Afterlife.
My family in NY and in MA are snowed in, due to the blizzard, but they are safe. I hope my friends living in the eastern part of the U.S., are safe. Please be cautious. My thoughts and prayers to all of you.
