The View From Here

In the foreground of this pic is the Saban Research tower–CHLA's hub of science and research. As you read this, there are studies going down in that building that are not happening anywhere else in the world. Serious stuff. As an aside, this building also sits atop the Sunset/Vermont subway station. Those of you who live in cities with subterranean transit systems probably think we're behind the times with this late Twentieth Century addition to our megalopolis. Or that we're nuts to travel underground with the potential of earthquakes. Matt from Dangerbird takes the train several days a week from his home in South Pasadena to our office in Hollywood.

The hilltop building you see in the background is the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House–the anchor of the Barnsdall Art Park where we saw Shakespeare in the Park a couple Fridays ago. Me and my brothers are all heavily into Wright. He is a Wisconsin bro from the hills outside Madison. When Scott and Dean were here during Scott's chemo regimen, we walked the grounds up there. I have a pic of Scott standing at the end of the house that you can (sort of) see here.

Another reminder that we were on a path toward this hospital for a long long time.
