This year’s annual Monk and me road trip has officially begun. We’re in LA at the lux and fabulous home of my cousins. Eating gourmet food and swimming in the pool under the clearest blue skies imaginable. This is why people live in LA. The weather. That and Sprouts! My favorite supermarket because they make a tasty cranberry and walnut bread and they have Dr Bronner’s Patchouli moisturizer.
We head out in the morning, in a northeasterly direction with the intention of meeting up with friends in Colorado, camping along the way.
The Monk tells me that the Buddha had a driver when he ventured out from his childhood home. His name was Chanda so I’m adopting that name for this trip, especially after I looked it up and found this: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=chanda
Scenes from LA…
Last year’s trip:
Oh, Chanda! Have a wonderful time. And pray tell what that color blue might be.
Thanks Elizabeth, you too! i guess this blue came with the house, they don’t know the name but it’s stunning. It was a perfect serene retreat before the road trip.
You go, Chanda!
I’m so happy for you and the monk! I miss you bad but know that you are taking me with you in spirit.
Big, big love.
We miss you!!!! So wish you were here. I will do my best to keep you up to date. love you.
Happy trails, Chanda! I love hearing of your adventures with the monk. He seems to be such a combination of enlightened and of this world, it’s delightful. How wonderful to have such a friend, him, and you.
Thank you R!! I’m so happy you get to come along. Love,
