Take the Time to Enjoy – Recharge!

Is more really more?  Big question, bigger answer.This is a photo of the Los Anglese night skyline, slightly blurred.

Los Angeles is huge, and opportunities abound- so, to avoid the “do it ALL” illusion, you smartly focus on what’s highest on your priority list. Constantly focusing on priorities though, can leave you tried and frustrated.

And that’s when you need to focus on the highest priority of all — YOU!

We all relax in different ways, but I find one of the more fun ways to recharge, is to treat yourself with a place filled with beauty, wonder and comfort…  Here are a couple of my favorite places to *recharge*

Have you discovered Greystone Mansion and Park? It’s hidden away as a beautiful treasure; the flowers and landscaping defy description, and the old manor seems to come right off a storybook page.  An afternoon at Greystone leaves me dreaming to come back again, and again, and again.

Here’s the link to their website:


Or how about Barnsdale Art Park, high atop Olive Hill?  It’s filled with beautiful art and inspiring architectural structure- and the views are fabulous. The Barnsdale Gallery Theatre also offers a schedule of great shows- my dance academy had our Spring Dance concert there, and I’ve liked the place ever since.

And finally, how can anyone recharge without a perfect place to eat savory Italian? Miceli’s is a great restaurant- and the lasagna?  You just have to experience it to believe it. C’est tres delicious (I know that’s French, but oh well). Their menu is huge, and it’s Hollywood’s oldest restaurant!

Now you know some of my favorite spots to recharge. But, there are plenty of others out there. They are simply awaiting your discovery!
