The last days of the Baldwin Motel on Washington Boulevard.

Made famous in April 2001 when Robert Downey Jr. was arrested while hanging out here. At the time he was on parole for prior drug arrests, having a loaded .357 Magnum revolver in his car, and for breaking into his neighbor's house and passing out in their child's bed.

According to the arrest report, Downey emitted a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" and "rambled on without any questions being addressed to him." As the police officer patted him down, Downey repeatedly tried to turn around, so the officer had to grab his arms and press him up against the patrol vehicle. I wish I had a photo of that.

Heart_shaped_leaf

Today, we took a little walk into the lush mountains that surround us. Up what has been over the years a dusty trail, now a rugged, verdant path into a cool, green forest, we were enveloped by wisky grass and flowery vine and tree-arched pathways into beds of foliage that haven't come forth here in at least a decade.
I saw a remarkable flower that popped up from the middle of a green heart-shaped leaf an inch in diameter, the flower a brief cluster of white buds on a slightly arching stalk. They were clustered along the path, about 100 feet, their complete sphere of existence. They burst up above the trodden ground three or four inches, that's all. On the uphill side of the trail, lily leaves suggesting that delicate flowers were to come. We have to return to see the outcome.
