"Now this is really getting depressing, this constant deal making - I'll give you this if you give me that, it's so unnecessary. Now here we are in paradise, we have everything we could ever possibly want out of life just here. So why, why can't we just do things for one another simply because we want to, simply because we're friends, simply because we feel like helping each other?" (Magnum PI)

time with Sheila's rendition of Bang Bang, which opened
François Ozon's beautiful short

over the weekend, i got to escape the fires & smoke of LA for
the beaches of Orange County. i know i know, the OC is
sooo not my vibe. but the air was cleaner & the
Pacific waves so very refreshing!
i took a bunch of pics on my phone...
along the Pacific Ocean, check out the Orange County kitsch:
check out the mushroom cloud of smoke above Los Angeles:
fires in the hills make for beautiful sunsets:
