You know the best part of a vacation for me is spending time with awesome people like these. Hanging out with the family was the funnest part of the trip for me. I loved playing games every night (even though Jethro and Robyn won every game we played). I loved going to the beach with Toni and Ben and Anna and Bus. I loved having great food prepared by everyone. I loved preparing food for this most appreciative group. You guys are so much fun. Thanks.

While the art inside the Getty Center is astounding, (I asked Jethro to paint me this kind of a still life 3 years ago...I'm still waiting)

The real beauty is to be found in the gardens surrounding the big campus of buildings.
These are made out of painted rebar with beautiful flowering plants inside of them.

Thanks Mr. Getty for allowing us to see your art displayed in an unforgettable setting. And mostly for not charging us an arm and a leg to see it. ($8 for parking, that's it!)

Another day another vacation done. I know, its a hard life but at least I took some pictures so you can enjoy the sunset vicariously. Bus and I walked down to the beach one night to take some pictures and enjoy the time together. We saw one couple at a vista lookout with their roasted chicken picnic and wine. There was a guy out surfing below us. Some Asian kids walked by us while we were relaxing on the bench. This is looking north from Crystal Cove State Park south of Corona del Mar.

This book seems to have a lot of interesting lessons. When I finished it my head was spinning at how the story wrapped up. As I have been thinking about the message I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with my personal legend or what my main goal in life is. According to the alchemist whatever your personal legend is the Soul of the World conspires to make it happen for you. You have to be aware of the omens or little things that guide you towards your goal. Most times they are quite subtle. I will be thinking about this for a while and see what I can come up with. If you have read this story tell me what your impression of the message is. There were examples in the book of those who ignore their personal legend or don't want to put the effort forth to accomplish it. There were many other lessons to be learned from the shepherd's journey. So many symbols. I would love to hear your thoughts about this book.
