The Hit List - I love LA!

I’ve always considered myself a New Yorker, even though I only lived there a short time. When I first arrived, I felt more like myself than I ever had. New York is the one place that resonates down to my marrow. But Los Angeles? It was a different story. The first time I visited LA, I hated it. The traffic was overwhelming, the air quality questionable, the sun too hot, and some of the folks I met were not my cup o’ tea. I couldn’t wait to get home.

But somehow I got convinced to go a second time. Then a third. It began to grow on me. Now after five visits? I LOVE LA!

I spent the weekend teaching at 22 Teachings, my new favorite metaphysical spot. Here are pics from the event as well as other things I did this time around (it won’t be my last time – see you soon!).
