About this blog

PARIS, LA blog is about the magic accidents of life. It’s about artists, writers, photographers, musicians and designers that cross our mind, and our heart for a day, a season, a life!

JOSHUA TREE

I recently visited Joshua Tree, where temperatures soured above 110 degrees fahrenheit! With plenty of water in hand, I set off on a few hikes through fields of twisting Joshua Trees and hills of granite boulders. Small desert iguanas dashed across my path and into the shade of rocks. Joshua Tree National Park is a […]
