I love Venice – what an eclectic neighborhood. From creative artists, affluent neighborhoods, the canals, colorful buildings, Venice Beach, Muscle Beach, Venice Boardwalk, to the homeless, drug addicts, street dwellers; this community encompasses all aspects of humanity within its borders. Tonight I drove down Main Street admiring all of the trendy and niche business and a mere block away, a few homeless (campers?) were stationed on the sidewalk of an industrial business block on one side, apartments on the other. I’m always amazed how the homeless seem to have pets and if you look closely to the left of the tent, you’ll see a black cat’s ears and face barely poking out of the tent. Right around the corner in a small alleyway was a building covered in graffiti. As the year progresses, I will be spending more time in this eclectic town!
