POD: L.A. Love
There have been instances where not getting my cinnamon raison bagel in the morning has ruined a better part of my day or when a grilled chicken with wild mushroom pasta has uplifted my spirits in a way that only Alfredo sauce can.
This train of thought slowly led me to think about all the OTHER things I love about Los Angeles, moving beyond just its culinary aspects.
Every morning I look for pictures to add to our SoCal Connected Flickr Pool , so I decided to type in the words 'Love Los Angeles' and see what other have posted on the subject of loving in our city.
The first picture of interest I found was by Flickr user Pink Moose
(Am I the only one that gets the sense of L.A. commercialization when this phrase is put on a shopping bag instead of a cap or shirt? Am I over thinking this?)
Is it a fashion faux pas to wear a shirt that says "I Love L.A"? Is it a faux pas to say faux pas?
As I continued my search I found this next picture, by Lord Jim
Again, love in Los Angeles is being used commercially, but what is not to love about a flower shop that advertises loving a special someone? It is a place open seven days a week, dedicated to the sharing and spreading of love and friendship in this city. So you have to pay $25 for the flowers, oh well. (Have you noticed the bird flying conspicuously on top?)
Finally, this video found in vimeo shows love in a way that only Los Angeles can. It proves that not everybody in this city drives and that the Metro Red Line is a perfect place for romance. Find love, Go Metro.
Pictures are worth a thousand words, and these have lovely things to say.

Despite being overshadowed by a week of protests against police brutality, the coronavirus continued to claim lives in Los Angeles County, with health officials today announcing 60 new deaths and 1,202 new confirmed COVID-19 cases.
Following days of protests against police brutality, the president of the Los Angeles Police Commission president said today the board will take steps to review and revise police policies, with input from the community.
George Floyd’s death has again triggered demands for police reform and an end to racism — the same cry that occurred almost 30 years ago when King survived a brutal beating at the hands of LAPD.
“Our nation has come a long way, and we still have a long way to go.” said Rev. Cecil “Chip” Murray, pastor of the First African Methodist Episcopal (FAME) Church of Los Angeles during the 1992 Uprising.
