Sunday night, at the Newport Film Festival, we saw a new documentary about the Freedom Writers Diary, “a collection of journal entries written by 150 at-risk students from Long Beach, California, who were once considered ‘unteachable’. Encouraged by teacher, Erin Gruwall, and inspired by Anne Frank, the students discovered a new way of expression and began to care more about history, humanity, and perhaps, most importantly, their futures.”
This incredible story was helped to reality by our Music is Hope Foundation president John Tu.
Idyllwild on Mount San Jacinto was just what the doctor ordered for Memorial Day weekend!

It’s hard to imagine that it was 110 degrees last week, and today we had more than an inch of rain. It never got above 68/20 all day. Records were set all over LA County for rainfall on this date in history. It’s early for heavy rain in these parts. But we do have seasons for anyone that still thinks we don’t.
I missed photographing the big puddles because I was busy trying to avoid them! I only have an exhaust driven defroster so I almost have to drive with my head out the window in this kind of weather.
