Though I had a lovely poem about wild swans by Edna St. Vincent Millay to share, I’m hijacking today’s ANIMAL post to bring to your attention some things that have happened this week and will happen this weekend that I think are quite exciting.
1. The flowers above don’t really have to do with this post but aren’t they lovely? They were a gift from our sweet friend Angela.
2. Don’t know if you saw the tweets, but Stefani and I were both featured on the awesome Los Angeles focused art, design, lifestyle, and culture website, Los Angeles, I’m Yours earlier this week: HERE & HERE.
3. Speaking of Los Angeles, I know I talk about it and my love for it a bit much on this here blog, but I read this quote by Eve Babitz earlier this week and my heart went thump thump:
“People nowadays get upset at the idea of being in love with a city, especially Los Angeles. People think you should be in love with other people or your work or love or justice. I’ve been in love with people and ideas in several cities and learned that the lovers I’ve loved and the ideas I’ve embraced depended on where I was, how cold it was, and what I had to do to be able to stand it all. It’s very easy to stand L.A., which is why it’s almost inevitable that all sorts of ideas get entertained, to say nothing of lovers.” -from Slow Days, Fast Company – The World, the Flesh and L.A.
4. There’s an exciting group show organized by Dave Muller and Andrew Berardini called She’s Not There that opens at Public Fiction this Friday night that Lauren Spencer King (who we’ve interviewed here before) is part of. Get the details HERE.
5. I stopped by the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock yesterday and saw their new exhibition space (which looks great). For those of you around this weekend, stop by for their inaugural exhibition, Mini Comic-Con, that’s co-curated by our dear friends Andrew Cox and Laura Marchetti!
ok, and now for really real lastly:
6. Watch out for the SUPERMOON! this weekend. It’s going to be the biggest full moon of the last 18 years (can you believe it?) and I get to be in the desert to bask in its glory (I promise to report back on its magnitude).
