Aquarium Magic

Despite having lived in SoCal for 20+ years, neither my friend Felicia nor I had been to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. Now, Felicia is leaving Los Angeles to move to New York, and we are making our way through a bucket list of places to go.

Walking through the hallways of the aquarium it seemed so apparent to me that any thing, any shape, any color, that we might have ever imagined or imagined to have invented ourselves, could be found in some shape, form, or function, in the ocean. Like the American penchant to want to remake really great British tv shows and Swedish films, perhaps all we want, is to be as impressive as what we're seeing, by doing.

Next on the bucket list: Catalina Island (time and kickass coupon permitting), Leimert Park, the Last Bookshop, and the Bradbury Building.
