LITTLE SURPRISES ALONG VENTURA BOULEVARD

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY               2013

On Day 24 of my walk of Ventura Boulevard, explored the areas east of Haskell Avenue toward Sepulveda.



 Courtyard Hotel Ventura Boulevard at 405 / Sepulveda in Encino.



 Historic Valley Inn Restaurant near Ventura Boulevard and the 405 freeway.
4557 Sherman Oaks Ave  Sherman Oaks, CA 91403

Rarely people pay attention to decorative ornaments such as this metal pinecone. Few passersby
know that they are seeing an the ancient Roman symbol of "welcome", rather than a friendly pineapple.
Placed at intersections, the sacred pinecone is sacred symbol of the God Mirtha, Lord of meeting
places. Mithra is the Indo-Persian-Roman God called the "Friend" or "Visitor."

 
 Do you suppose the colors on this Bell Telephone service hole cover have a purpose or some-
one's need to introduce color to the cover's great design.




I assume that the languages on this Sepulveda and Ventura Boulevard mean something like "trash". For me, it
rates right up there with Saint Nicholas Church in Encino offering services in Farsi.

"Rifiuti" is trash in Italian. Perhaps multilingual trash bins will encourage international tourists to do the right thing.
