I just came back from a trip to California to visit my mother.

I had a medical emergency while I was there. I am so glad Nancy went with me. Without her, things would have been much more complicated.

I'll arrange for more complete medical care during this coming week.

One thing is clear: I can't go to Free Spirit Gathering this year. I've already written them to cancel.

JFK is closed! We're not leaving, at least not for a long time.

I'm going to need some serious lovin' when I get back. Dinner and a movie at the very least.

The plane is delayed another hour. You didn't love me enough. *sniff*

Another hour of sitting in the plane until take-off. Need more love!

I have a three-hour wait at the Long Beach airport, while I wait for my plane to board. Now is a good time to tell me that you love me.

In which I gripe, but still try to count my blessings.

I flew to Los Angeles yesterday, to visit my mother for a combination Mother's Day + 80th birthday get-together. During the trip, I've had a chance to take in some of the sites of the region. Here are a few notes:

- The Pacific Ocean is lovely. That beauty is marred by the horizon, where the smog lies thick. The colors are pretty, but I can't forget what it represents.

- I walked along the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. The street has been converted Into an outdoor mall, with swank high-end shops lining the sidewalks and buskers in the middle. I watched Mister Animation's act; he knows how to work a crowd. The environment reminded me of Covent Garden in London.

- I visited the Santa Monica Pier for the first time in about 45 years. It's an amusement park set on a pier that juts into Santa Monica Bay. The smell of the sea overwhelms the more conventional odors of the cheap fast food. I learned that the Pier marks the end of old Route 66; the other end is in Chicago. If I traveled far enough along the "mother road", I'd come to Seligman, AZ; no, the town is not named after anyone related to me.

- The homeless are everywhere throughout this region. It's very sad. I thought this issue was a joke in Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog, but it's a serious problem here and there's no Captain Hammer to save them.

Tomorrow: the Lakeside Shrine of the Self-Realization Fellowship. I was there four years ago. It's lovely, and the only place outside of India where some of Gandhi's ashes are enshrined.
