Palm trees, palm trees! ヤシの木!

My daily life is surrounded by the palm trees since I moved to SoCal. I wake up with the stunning view of the palm trees, walk my dog along with the palm trees and end my day with the spectacular sunset over the palm trees. They are everywhere, even in the carp pond (can you see the palm tree there?) As they are all over me I'd like to think of them as my protectors!


I saw this woman meditating at the foot of the palm tree... Yes, it is a bit taller than a bodhi tree in Bodhgaya, so what?


Then, where is this? This photo was taken by my friend, Jeff Holck, in New York. It's a large photo by John Baldessari at the Met, a conceptual artist. I had never heard of this artist before, so I googled. It's funny to find out that he is from San Diego! He must have photographed one of the most familiar items in his life - the palm trees. It must be not so bad to look at this in a icy cold New York right now!


So, this is John Baldessari... what a beautiful and shiny hair he's got! 


Am I the only one to think of Dr. Zaius from the Planet of the Apes...? That was my favorite movie, and I only saw it 30 times!!! Now I want to see it again...
