|On the Road in Irvine at the Chinese Cultural Center|
It was quite a week that began with my joining an orientation for the upcoming special election in Orange County tomorrow. I captured the above image while at the Chinese Community Center in Irvine last week. I appreciate the opportunity to once again be witness to Democracy in Action.
What blew me was my morning of service as a Principal for the Day as I hope to reflect upon it soon. I also had the pleasure to represent Our Fathers' Table at a Community Meeting to discuss the mission of the organization and I was so appreciative of the graciousness shown by the Host Organization: Niguel Shores Mens' Club. This is as the weekend started with a Lent Retreat at St. Timothy's that was quite reflective which I also look forward to write about. I will also note that a week is not even possible without my mentioning the work at the Daily Outsider. There are some interesting things going on which I look forward to talking about real soon--it is kind of fun to see the blood, sweat (and yes tears at times) finally coming together.
It has been also quite a week on the weather front in Southern California.. Rain may becoming again--but Laguna Niguel is as beautiful as ever as the #LN30 celebration is continuing onward:
I am glad to see as the City has staffed up to further its' on-going outreach efforts with some fun stuff including TriviaThursday--I just noticed banners that went up Crown Valley Parkway. It is also Nowroz as I had the pleasure to put up the "7 Seen" at my place--it is not the most creative but the spirit of it all is what is absolutely critical to underscore:
This beautiful Persian Melody captures the beauty and majesty of advent of Nowruz:
I could not help myself but finish this set of #RandomThoughts with this beautiful Hindi Medley - - From the Classic Mujhse Dosti Karoge (which means will you be my friend) from 2002 w/ Hrithik, Kareena and Rani:
Onward to the new week!!
