The Devil Dog is back in Los Angeles after a whirlwind week in Washington DC. The excitement in the city as we build to inauguration day is palpable, and the monuments of this Acropolis on the Potomac are aglow at night in preparation for the crowds to come.
But in Los Angeles the Devil Dog retires to his zen compound in Sherman Oaks, the principle features in which are the two endless fountains that mark the front and back yards.
Above is the view of the golden urn fountain from just inside the front gate, and below is the blue green obelisk fountain in the midst of the Garden Bar. The compound is a place to refresh and restore the batteries, to write and repose before the next undiluted journey that lies ahead.
