Zephyr's Bench

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous in LA. A little windy but that just added to that wonderful feeling of being alive. Feeling nature gust around you, it really shows you just how precious life is and that we are really not the ones in control. Nature in my mind is without a doubt in charge, best to acknowledge it and try to live in communion with it.

I was off work a little earlier than usual yesterday so we went on a hiking exploration. C’s been wanting to find a way into the Beverly Glen Canyon reservoir for a while and yesterday we found our way. We parked in a cul de sac and made our way up a steep, grassy hill. At the top was a trail and spectacular views for 360 degrees. You could see the city, the valleys between canyons and the huge reservoir. It was breathtaking. We hiked around and came upon a bench overlooking the whole reservoir. On the bench, we found a pouch with a journal and pens. The book and bench were placed there by a guy named David who use to come to this spot with his dog Zephyr. In 1996 he buried Zephyrs ashes under the bench he brought there in his memory. He’s on his 12th journal now that people who’ve been lucky enough to come across this spot have written in. I live to find magical places and experiences like this.

On the hike down I collected more pine cones and spray painted them gold at home to finish my Christmas wreath. Almost done with it! I really like how it turned out.

Have a great day and I hope you are feel the wind, snow, rain or sun shine down on you!
