The Huntington Library

A couple of hours away, tucked into an elegant neighborhood in San Marino (near Pasadena),  an exquisite  collection of books, art, and nature are open to the public most days. The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens offer glimpses of history, decadence, and beauty in no small measure. If you have never been, or if, like me, your exposure was long ago as a child, find some time to take the short trip down south and be enchanted. This visit was a belated birthday gift to Phillip, who had heard that an area devoted to Charles Bukowski was on temporary display. I am so glad that we were able to take in this exhibit on its closing day.
