#274- At Descanso Gardens


 

 

Between work (writing) and work (writing), I go to Descanso Gardens.

 

I usually get there by walk (except night time) from my apartment in Montrose.

 

 

Descanso Gardens is like my gym, my meditation room and my dining room (at the night concert and DJ night).

 


 

I usually go there by myself (I have a membership), but I sometimes invite my friends.




 

With friends I always find something new (new angle view, new plants and new flowers).

 










 

The other day I wanted to find everything what I read in the sign of Leonardo da Pisa (Leonardo Fibonacci / Italian mathematician) about the patterns and geometries of his famous golden ratio “Fibonacci spiral series” (sunflower, pinecone, snail).

































 







Yes, I found a sunflower in the Main garden, I found a pinecone in the California garden and I found a snail in the Hope Garden.


It’s a miracle.

 










 



Yes, Nature is miracle… including human beings…

 



























When I walk in Descanso Gardens I feel good energy from trees, plants, flowers, animals (squirrel, deer, rabbit, bird, duck, koi fish etc.), insects & reptiles (bee, butterfly, lizard etc.) and people (people are very friendly).























 

 





















































I’m very happy to walk, meditate and eat (Maple at Descanso Gardens and Descanso Gardens café have fabulous food) at Descanso Gardens.

 






I’ve got also a lot of great ideas to write books during walking at Descanso Gardens.





































Descanso Gardens is a happy place for me.

 

Since March 8, today was my 42nd visit and enjoyed the Kathleen Grace concert.

 

 


Summer just started… I’m enjoying summer at Descanso Gardens.

 

How about you? Do you have special plans for summer?

 

Happy summer to everyone!

#271-Why people fight?

Why do human beings keep fighting with each other or fighting wars?

About profit?

About territory?

About religion?

About ethnicity?

About statism?

About collectivism?



Why can’t we talk instead of fight (war)?

People are trying to change others…

People don’t want to change for others…

People think “I am right, you are wrong”…



I was thinking about “how can we resolve issues of terrorism and war in this world, can we talk instead of fighting?”



And then I realized “I need to think about my issue first” (since I moved into my apartment in Montrose one year ago)… yes, I have an issue about my living situation… my upstairs neighbor (64 years old woman who is not working) has been waking me up every night (around 11:15pm, 12:15am and 1:15am) with loud squeezing footsteps (it sounds not normal & regular footsteps) for one year… I had to call police twice, and I fought with this neighbor twice…



I tried to go to bed at the same time when this neighbor goes to bed… it doesn’t work (for me late night ene…

Title of this column: From L.A. “Slut?”
(http://www.senken.co.jp/report/downtown-la-eggslut/)

Since a few years ago, I have been noticing the egg shape sign of “eggslut” (http://www.eggslut.com) on the way to L.A. fashion district in downtown Los Angeles.

“Slut” means in Japanese “bimbo”, “whore”, “hooker” and “slut”.
“eggslut (a woman is sleeping around with eggs)”? This shocking name of the restaurant has been bringing curiosity to me.

This restaurant (“eggslut”) has a counter at the “Grand Central Market” which is also famous as a tourist popular spot, and when I drive by this place my curiosity about this place is getting bigger and bigger, because I always see a long line in front of…

#273- My last email to an upstairs neighbor

After I watched abc TV 20/20 CATFISH episode (Hooking a Catfish) “How this Canadian woman catfished an NBA star and an aspiring model, almost ruining their lives” (http://abcnews.go.com/US/canadian-woman-catfished-nba-star-aspiring-model-ruining/story?id=46778331) , I totally understood about how my upstairs neighbor (woman) is thinking…
These sick women are boring about their lives and they want to make other people miserable like them.
As I wrote my blog post on April 19, 2017, I’m having a trouble with an upstairs neighbor… I was very angry but lately I feel sorry for her… she is a lonely woman (she only goes out two hours per week for grocery shopping, she doesn’t have any visitors, she is similar to that Canadian woman) and she wants someone’s attention to make her life excite and fun (in this case “evil fun”)…

For me no matter what, I’m always happy… I appreciate my life…

















Today after I saw this upstairs woman was walking around my home and peeking my home (where I sit or what am I …
