Adventures in Ojai, Pasadena + Los Angeles-Days 14-16

On Tuesday, Jamie + Natalie came over for breakfast, Henry went to a meeting, I worked on the computer and Moira worked on a quilt for one of Jack's classmates who was diagnosed with Leukemia.           When Henry came back, he took Jack and I to Ventura where he was setting up his new business, Ventura Spirits, a distillery that will brew liquor  from native plants.  It was amazing to finally see the stills after hearing so much about the process.  We came home and made my all time favorite taco dinner.  Henry + Jamie played guitar as the kids were going to bed and Henry sang August one of the sweetest lullabies I have ever heard.

Henry sings to August: Jamie + Henry+ Jamie sing after dinner:  

On Wednesday, I read books with the boys and then re-shot the family portrait.  I said goodbye to my dear friends and headed to Pasadena for a lecture for Jona's portrait class at Art Center.  And immediately after the lecture I headed to  do an interview on KPCC arranged by Josie Huang who used to work for public radio in Maine.  Although we never met, we had many mutual friends and she was kind enough to set up an interview and then buy me a beer after!  I dashed back to LA to meet Colin  for a fabulous meal at Mess Hall celebrating my last night in LA.
