Bring it and they will come. Happy New Year

Bring it and they will come…..

When Los Angeles Water and Power Chief William Mulholland completed the Owens Aqueduct in 1913, a much needed water supply began its 400 mile journey to Southern California via the Owens River. From that water supply, a small city called Los Angeles began to sprout from the dry and parched dirt of the pueblo. Today, Los Angeles is a beautiful and massive oak tree.

I have many things to be thankful for in 2010; good health, a job, good family, good friends, good pets and a roof over my head, but opportunities and time seem to have eluded me in 2010 much like precious water from a storm that runs off into the Los Angeles River and out into the ocean, never to be used to irrigate a grove of orange trees or cool down the elephants at the LA Zoo on a scorching day.

May your 2011 be fully consumed and never wasted. Happy New Year everyone !
