Today, Saturday...

... my mind is still reeling from the extraordinary experience of visiting the exhibition of Elias Sime's work at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. I mentioned him yesterday, I will be writing more about him in the next couple of days. Until then, I am content to be grateful for my health--a clean bill following my annual physical this past week; and for the gentle rain that is blessing us this weekend in Southern California...
