June gloom is coming earlier every year. We're quite in the midst of it right now, and it's mid-May. Still, my neighborhood is exploding with flowers in bloom like day workers are piling up in the Home Depot parking lot.

It's easy to stop and notice the beautiful. Even if you weren't inclined to look, it's hard to miss the fragrance. Even the parking lot at work smells like a florist's funeral.

Los Angeles makes it easy to feel happy. It's not automatic, but she wants you to, and will help.
