Click on the blue music icon above to hear some of the second movement from my “Sonata for Piano” to accompany this photo overlooking Paradise Cove on a stormy Saturday.
We’ve been having weather here in L.A., and the sky is filled with the anticipation of negative ions breezing around my skin. As I was leaving late this morning I just had to stop to snap this expansive scene over Paradise Cove (that’s our neighborhood restaurant there on the sand just below our house, where I’m found any time either of us is too lazy to cook). The grey clouds to the left became considerably darker as my trip progressed.
Scheduled to speak on a panel discussion at a new music festival at Cal State Fullerton, I had a long drive ahead to the southeastern edge of Los Angeles. What would have normally been a tedious and dreary journey was quite the opposite. Through the windshield and the sunroof, I could gaze at impossibly black-grey, ominous clouds that threatened to burst open at any moment and yet somehow held their liquid. The drama on all sides was ten-fold what you see here; the hues of the clouds were so dark that I began to search for the beginnings of funnel movement. Had I not been on a stultifying series of unforgiving freeways, I would have stopped to take even more dramatic photographs. It was that beautiful. Today was one of the very few times in a year when I would have been pleased for a long road trip across this bizarre metropolis to have taken even longer than it did.viagra and alpha blockerstramadol inurl acetaminophenviagra wp 11 2006 trackbackviagra 12 trackback 2006 wp2006 viagra trackback 10 wpfeb online daily statistics viagra 2003site com guest tramadol abel booktramadol cod accepted Mappayday 4 about loan apr 6payday loan loan 4 personalloan payday 40 link401 loan k limitlculator 8 loan mortgage 29 faxing loan no 9 paydaypayday loan auto 9 13payday 9 loan payday Map
