Some Ancient Roman Words On My Mind

Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart. --Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (26 April 121 – 17 March 180) was the Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 and is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers.

I'm not, but its a beautiful song.

Out of the blue, I just had a memory from age 9 or so of my aunt Judy's ELVIS PRESLEY rug.

The Unmasking of LACMA’s Resnick Pavilion

An exquisite evening that was perfectly produced, last weekend LACMA unmasked their amazing $53 million dollar Renzo Piano designed Resnick Pavilion. This block of Los Angeles is truly like a time machine, from 40,000 year old bubbling tar pits and fossils at the Page Museum and La Brea Tar Pits to colossal basalt heads now on view at LACMA from the Olmec civilization of Mexico, circa 1400 BC.
