What I'm Reading: Farewell to Manzanar - 1 in a series -

“February 19, 1942 President Roosevelt signs Executive Order 9066, giving the War Department authority to define military areas in the western states and to exclude from them anyone who might threaten the war effort.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston

We visited my sister in Palm Springs this weekend, and she took us to this amazing place out at Trilogy. 
Since it is the summer, the place was empty and we got personalized attention as well as this wonderful food. All of us kept commenting on the food well into the evening.

The Getty Digital Archive Expands to 135,000 Free Images: Download High Resolution Scans of Paintings, Sculptures, Photographs & Much Much More via Open Culture

July 5th, 2019 Comments off
While I had posted about this in the past, it looks as if the Getty has expanded their online offerings even further. This is one of the best uses for the Internet — expanding access to physical objects to those who can’t visit the geographic locations where they exist. I know that not everyone lives “down the hill” from the Getty Center like I do and yet can still see these amazing works of art. — Douglas
 
 
A collection first gathered for private investment and consumption (sometimes under a cloud of scandal) has expanded into galleries that millions pass through every year; a Conservation Institute dedicated to preserving the world’s art; and a Research Institute proclaiming a social mission: a devotion to expanding “our knowledge of the history of art, of all countries, of all languages,” according to its director Thomas Gaehtgens, who also says, “a society without art cannot really survive.”

Walking to an appointment I looked up as I waited at a crosswalk and caught this quintessential Los Angeles scene — blue sky, sharp sun, palm trees and architecture.
