What are your Leimert Park stories of the year?

I'll be putting together a list by the end of the week, but I'd love to hear what moved you this year?

The Space Shuttle and the new trees? The Trayvon Martin vigil? The Expo Line? Four more years? There were a number of big and small events that occurred in the Soul of Los Angeles. Let's reflect on 2012. Photo by Kerry Roberts of 3710…

Beautiful Christmas home display

Check out our neighbor's display at 3710 Grayburn! What a beautiful Christmas display and so much movement including a merry go round and Ferris wheel!

Editors note from Enhager - "Now this is what I call teamwork - or taking a village. Kathleen alerts us about this wonderful display at her neighbor's house. Kerry then takes a spectacular photo at night of "Christmas Display 3710 GrayBurn." Bravo!"…

Hummingbird visits Leimert Park on Christmas

A hummingbird visited me for Christmas.

Earlier this year, we had two hummingbird nests and four babies in my Leimert Park…

Stay in the Senses of the Season

Sounds of music, Distant  & Close

Speaking of a child born years ago

We celebrate his coming, bringing greatness, giving joy

We yet long for, search out, journey towards

his season & All Year.


Sounds of music, articulating love, peace, & rememberance

reosonating reflection


Sounds of the moment, caroling correlation, & calm

Enter into the zone, without a phony sales pitch

Don't be shocked as I was when you drive to the rear of the post office on Crenshaw across from Albertson and discover that ALL OF THE MAILBOXES have been REMOVED. WHAT THE......??? None in the front.......none down the block or on surrounding corners that I could find. How arrogant is that to remove critical services from the community without widespread media or mailed warnings. I am checking corners where mailboxes used to be to determine the extent of the removals. DO THE SAME AND SHARE…
