My parents and I paid a visit to Marvin and Lilli Ann Rosenberg, neighbors of ours who are established mosaic artists, having done murals and sculptures all over the place. They're in their eighties, and have lived in the Applegate for about 20 years, in a house that was originally built by Richard Bach, author of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull". It's in constant flux, with new art and additions being created and added to it all the time. I'd been there once before and knew that my mom would like this place, so I arranged a visit while my folks were in town. ABOVE: I love this tree, with the treehouse.

Above: Marvin Rosenberg, my parents Susan and Andy and Jeremy (on the floor), a ceramicist and carpenter who has become the Rosenberg's partner in art as well as doing carpentry and landscaping projects all over their land.
Above: Jeremy & Marvin in the kitchen; Below: I don't know why, but this is my favorite art piece in their place, the airplane made of junk. There's something so fun and whimsical about it.
