I have been having way too much fun lately.
I had a truly lovely birthday. My friend Maudie (see previous post) shot the pic above of the Kokuho Rose Brown Rice Bowl: Sorrel Pesto (nut free), Preserved Meyer Lemon, Lacto Fermented Hot Sauce, Black Radish, French Sheep Feta, Poached Egg (7.25).
At the Norton Simon Museum later, as I always do when there I visited Van Gogh's "The Mulberry Tree," which he painted in between time at the asylum and cutting off his ear (he committed suicide eight months later).
I perused "Beyond Brancusi: The Space of Sculpture."
At the museum store, I bought two coasters painted with Dutch tulips.
And before hearing Beethoven's Op. 131, I enjoyed a halcyon interlude wandering the grounds. Which include a large pond dotted with--thank you, God--water lilies.
