Alondra Park


This is a huge park with a lake near El Camino College where I am taking a class.  I stopped on the way to school recently and took some pictures.  I particularly like this picture with the the ducks on the water and the trees in the background.  It’s not the safest area, but any park will be potentialy unsafe, especially after dark.


Worst Day Ever

I may have posted this at some point, but it’s worth revisiting.  Be sure to read from bottom to top.  🙂

“Worst Day Ever?” By Chanie Gorkin

Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don’t try to convince me that
There’s something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Even if
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.
And it’s not true that
It’s all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be obtained
Only if one’s surroundings are good
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure you can agree that
The reality
My attitude
It’s all beyond my control
And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that
Today was a good day
