Rain! Sun! Santa Anas in November! Ocean water at 70 degrees, also in November? El Nino is really rearing its head! All I can say at this moment, is that I still do a little rain dance when water actually FALLS FROM THE SKY! My sweet Scottie, Olive, now 12 years old, doesn’t quite understand the phenomenon, and hates to get her paws wet. So much for a dog whose ancestors ran around the Moors.
But enough weatherspeak. I need to let you know about my upcoming classes and appearances.

“. . . three weekends celebrating food, music and culture of the non-Ashkenazi Jewish diaspora. Last year we focused on Syria, Iraq and Tunisia and North Africa. This year we are focusing on Iran, Morocco and Spain. Clockshop is a multifaceted arts organization that works at the intersection of cultural production, politics, and urban space. We produce projects by contemporary visual and performing artists and program events, screenings, and conversations. We are especially interested in bringing people together to share in the strange particularities of our hometown, Los Angeles, and in the global creative practices and politics that influence us.”
The event is being held in an area of LA I had never heard of called FROGTOWN:
Notes the LA Times: “The tiny, 8,800-person community known colloquially as Frogtown suddenly is impossible to ignore. (Its official name, Elysian Valley, is rarely used.) Artists Shepard Fairey, Mark Grohjahn and Thomas Houseago recently opened studios there. Nomad Art Compound, a sort of hybrid print shop/commune, has established itself as one of the weirdest and coolest venues in L.A. Frogtown’s annual arts festival, the Frogtown Art Walk. . .”
