As part of that visit, I went with them to their church…the very cool artistically inspired Hope Chapel.

Dare to be happy

Every now and again I’ll pass a bill board on the 30 Freeway that says “Let misery keep its own company.  Dare to be happy”.  And beneath is a picture of a bright yellow VW Bug.  Clever advertising….and good advice tacked on for good measure. Of course we know that true happiness does not come […]

I have two Jesse (that’s my oldest son) stories for the price of one. My son Jesse loves to draw cars and traffic scenes.  He draws really marvelous shapes of cars, and trucks and fans with really fanciful titles and colors.  One day recently I asked if I could see one of his car scape […]
