Happy Healthy New Year to Gryph and everyone on this blog...may we see and hear less of Sarah Palin and her family in the New Year.
Say WHAT? "Smiles, everyone, smiles!"Happy New Year. Gryph and IM!
Happy New Year to all the IM crowd. Off topic, but TMZ reports yet another Palin Deevorce. Haven't seen it yet here, but maybe I missed it. www.tmz.com/2012/12/31/sarah-palin-sister-in-law-divorce-todd-palin-brother-james/?adid=hero3"Wendy Palin -- who's married to Todd Palin's brother James -- filed the papers in Alaska this summer, citing an "incompatibility of temperament" that makes it impossible to live together."Ummm WHATS THIS? Also too from TMZ:"A hearing is set for January -- but until then Wendy has primary custody and James gets visitation ... as long as he lays off booze for 24 hours before seeing his daughter. "Doesn't Wendy work at a medical facility where Bristol supposedly has worked also too? This might be bad news for Bristol's Medical Office Management career. It's a durn good thing the Palins believe in letting bygones be bygones, living your own life and that life is too short to carry a grudge. Civility and politeness at all times also too.
OMG, wherever that photo is taken I seriously couldn't live there! But that aside, happy new year fellow humans, there are just way too many of you in that photo though!
That is LA, 101/ Ventura Freeway near the Capitol Records Building. We're glad to be here with the creative, vibrant culture of Southern California.

Anon @ 5:54: I believe that's a shot of I-5 in Los Angeles. Chaotic, no? Not much fun when driving either...A Happy New Year to Gryph and all the other IM'ers!
Not I5. The Cahuenga Pass, near the Hollywood Bowl.

emrysa, when you look at this for a while, it becomes a perfect metaphor: "Life is a River".Wherever we may be, there is a river of forward movement, though there can and always will be obstacles to be navigated. May we keep looking and moving forward and always try to bring others with optimism and courage in spite of inevitable setbacks.All the Best...
A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!!!It is my sole wish that more people on this tiny ball of mud understand LUCFT.LOVE. UNDERSTANDING. COMPASSION. FORGIVENESS. TOLERANCE.
That traffic display above, looks like a SoCal freeway.
From "Das Emergi, an underground spiritual classic from the 70's:"Let us remember that our lives are but moments in the flow of eternity...And let us also remember that eternity is but a flow of lives like ours."
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
