Water is something that I cherish. I am incredibly grateful that I have such easy access. We need water daily to focus clearly,  lubricant our joints, detoxify, and it aids in weight loss for those who are trying to do that.

I drink 2 liters daily. The large water bottles you find in stores are 1.5.

Not only do we need to preserve water, we need to know the politics of water. It has become a commodity,  it is being privatized, activists and law makers are going head to head, and people are dying.

I recommend the book and documentaty, Blue Gold.

Below are photos of the my Vitamin Waters.

Has anyone ever thought of this?

Dragonfruit with VOSS Sparkling Water.
Dragonfruit is a sweet but subtle fruit. I tried using fresh spring water, but the flavor fell flat.  Using Sparkling water did the trick.

Griffith Park Tea House Installation Comes to San Pedro

Opening ceremony for the Griffith Park Tea House installation took place last night. I was unable to attend so I visited the tea house, briefly, Friday afternoon.

The tea house sits atop Knoll Hill in San Pedro. It appears that this may be a travelling installation.  Pedro may not be its home.

Note all photos are by Lady J © March 2016. Photos are meant for this blog only.

Inside the house was a small bench, a bell, and wooden tablets to scribe upon. On these tablets wishes are written.  When I arrived,  I was greeted by a woman who had collected what looked to be about 100 wishes that had flown away due to high wind.

Some of the wishes were warming and others were just plain ridiculous.

My wish for Los Angeles:

A wish
A hope
A knowing
that inside our ribs
we carry the light that lives
and the light that dims

I'm so appreciative of this installation.  I love tea houses,  and I love Pedro, Los Angeles, and the powerful simplicity of a wish.
