For months I have wept my eyes out because I literally had not walked on grass since I got here. There’s too much city and an abundance of cracked, jaggedy concrete.
You guys. I found my new favorite place AND it has a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright AND it has grass!!! BARNSDALL ART PARK. It also has badass views of Downtown’s skyline and two famous landmarks… guess. No, you can’t guess.
I’ve always loved reading and writing stomach-down in the grass. And even though I’ve hit a terrible case of writer’s block lately, there are two landmarks in the distance to keep me going. Exhibits A & B: the Hollywood sign on the left and Griffith Observatory on the right.
And then you turn around and Downtown’s skyline greets you.
Am only sad that I didn’t find this ’til November. We could have had such fun this whole summer, heart-shaped chairs. Oh well. It’s going to be 80 tomorrow, so not much difference there.
