On the Road - The LA ride - Santa Monica Antique Market

1st and 4th Sunday of EVERY MONTH….

I drive around Los Angeles and love to hit the Antique Market at the Santa Monica airport.

Now in it's 20th year, this interesting show is easy to walk, has free parking and the best quesadilla going.

There are Vintage, Retro & Antique Dealers, Victoriana to Mid Century Furniture, Chandeliers, clothing, Jewellery, Art, Rugs, China and silver.

Next show…Sunday February 1.

Always something to discover. Noted as one of the top ten flea markets in America.

Next show Sunday February 1.

"It's not what you know you're going to do - it's what you discover in the act of doing it."

….so says Jack Grapes,  http://www.jackgrapes.com award winning poet, playwright, actor and teacher of word juggling extraordinaire. And guess what….he's right…there are so many unknowns to the unknown and how can one ever know how it will unfold until the unfolding begins…

Did J. M. W. Turner know he would paint exactly this when he stood before the blank canvas? http://www.william-turner.org 

It's January and time for the annual watercolour display at the 
Scottish National Galleries…

and so a new year begins, slightly cold, unusual in it's loneliness and heart speak and time travel and the digital age and the warp speed with which it all travels. Now is the time to read Marcel Proust, take in season 5 of Downton Abbey, and remember …."it's what you discover in the act of doing it."
