Favorite thing: The Gardens of the World in nearby Thousand Oaks, California has six botanical and cultural gardens to walk and enjoy the beauty of the flora as well as a hint of what is seen in different countries. The Japanese Garden draws those looking for peace and a place to relax outside of the busy world and in the tranquility of running pond water with Koi fish to admire while majestic bamboo rises above the Pagoda. Now and then someone looks to the Pagoda as a place of inspiration. Lance Bolton is one of those. He sat down on one of the benches lining the Pagoda and picked up his handmade wooden flute and began to play his music of a softness of notes that relaxed the mind and nurtured the soul. It is not a sight you see and hear that often, but I was lucky enough to be present to listen to Lance play the flute as if the Pagoda was his instrument of inspiration. Now and then one is surprised and treated to something special. This was one of those moments in the Japanese Garden of the Gardens of the World.
Just enjoy yourself, hang out, shop, eat and admire all the good looking women.
Fondest memory: Tommy Lee (of Motley Crue) and I hanging out and playing softball in Westlake.
