i love los angeles.
it is a city full of life.
this morning i went on my monthly
trip to the flower market off of maple & 7th.
a warehouse full of colors & smells.
but of course, after buying some
ranunculas (one of my favorites!),
i had to walk around & explore.
while i was enjoying life all around me, a
beautiful man named al started talking to me.
there was such sweetness & softness in his demeanor,
but you could see the brokeness & weariness that
comes from life on the streets.
ah, but he was beautiful.
(he is pictured below, walking away)
& i was reminded that the few blocks i was walking
were full of the two things
that bring me
joy: the homeless & creativity.
here are some more photos taken during my walk.
what a good day.
