L etters Why Not Evacuate by Sea? Re: “Malibu Residents Return by Sea,” News, Nov. 15 Unlike the evacuation of British troops depicted in the movie “Dunkirk,” the shelter-in-place situation at Pepperdine University during the Woolsey Fire involved just 2,500 people, and nobody was shooting. But it’s easy to predict that if disaster strikes again, narrow Pacific Coast Highway would once again slow to a standstill heading south toward safety. I would suggest an evacuation like Dunkirk, with shuttles to the Malibu Pier or Paradise Cove, where a convoy of volunteer boat owners from Marina del Rey, activated with the first fire alarm, could pick them up. The most important thing is to get people out of harm’s way, and I can’t see the vast Pacific Ocean being overlooked as an evacuation highway. Wallace Wyss, Malibu Property Rights Secure Our Freedoms Re: “The Youth Vote,” Cover Story, Nov. 1 Thanks for engaging the young

adults among us. Reading the comments from each, one might classify them by their political philosophies as follows: 11 to 12 liberal, perhaps three kind of in the center, and one possible conservative (but circumspect to not say it too loudly). What gives? Have none of these people ever attended a political debate? If they did, did no one represent the perspectives of capitalism and free enterprise, of freedoms enjoyed under limited governments, of how America created the highest standard of living for its citizens in the world and simultaneously maintained the economic and military strength to protect that world from bad guys for the past hundred years? Have their high school and college teachers exposed them some other way to such views? Have they heard arguments in support of such views and rejected them? As you can see, I have a lot of questions. Our system works hard to create equal opportunities for all but doesn’t guarantee equal results. Individual results in the real world depend on talent, effort, connections — and luck. A lot of

smart people (and some not so very) have tried to create utopian results through central-planning schemes — one of the current disasters being Venezuela, well-emulating Cuba. Government-defined rents are always at the heart of such ideas. Marketdefined rents, on the other hand, are at the heart of property rights; such rights in turn are at the heart of a free society. God bless these caring youth, and God bless America’s future. Tom Zimmerman, Marina del Rey

Westchester Apartment Fire Investigated as Double-Murder A raging apartment fire in Westchester on Saturday triggered an arson and double-murder investigation when firefighters discovered the bodies of two women who appeared to have been shot to death before the blaze erupted. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s officials have identified one of the victims as 16-year-old Sierra Brown. The identity of the other woman, said to be in her 20s, was still being withheld at press time pending notification of her next of kin. Television news agencies have reported that the women were sisters — each with children of their own — who had recently moved in together at The Madrid Apartments on Belford Avenue, near Manchester Avenue. A coroner’s spokeswoman was not able to confirm the victims’ relationship and said autopsies are pending. Firefighters responded to the scene at just after 9 a.m., quickly discovered the

bodies and extinguished the blaze within about 20 minutes. Lt. John Radke of the LAPD’s West Bureau Homicide Unit said Monday that police believe a white four-door 2015 Nissan Altima owned by one of the victims was stolen by a suspect or suspects in the women’s murder. The vehicle’s license plate number is 7CXN273. “It has been reported as a stolen vehicle, and we consider the person or persons with the car to be armed and dangerous,” Radke said. Both homicide detectives and the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Arson Unit are investigating. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call homicide investigators at (213) 3829470 or (877) 527-3247, or provide an anonymous tip at (800) 222-TIPS or crimestoppers.org. — Gary Walker

Planning for Equity Higher housing prices have Culver City anticipating downsides of growth By Gary Walker Culver City’s newfound success as a magnet for tech companies and as a destination for arts and entertainment has prompted city leaders to consider the downsides that often accompany growth: soaring real estate prices, lack of affordable housing, increasing density and snarled traffic. In other words, some people are excluded, while those able to remain often face new pressures and challenges. And so as Culver City officials begin the process of updating the city’s general plan — the overarching framework that guides local decisions about growth and development — they also turn to questions of equity. Last month the city hosted a public discussion of social equity and growth led by economic and environmental justice expert Dr. Manuel Pastor, a professor of sociology and American studies at USC. Citing societal trends toward greater income and educational inequalities, Pastor told an audience of about 75 at La Ballona Elementary School that cities absolutely must take housing costs into consideration when making future planning decisions. “Los Angeles is now the seventh most unaffordable rental market in the country relative to people’s income. There’s disparity by race, and that burden is particularly sharp here in Culver City,

where your household prices and rents have doubled the county’s average,” Pastor said. Previously, Culver City’s average income was about 33% higher than Los Angeles County. “Now it’s about 45% to 50% higher,” he said. “So Culver City has become a more

worse because [light rail is] opening up South Los Angeles,” he said. Racial disparities in education are among the most important injustices that cities should consider in their planning, Pastor said. Nationally, “Two-thirds of Latino children attend ‘high-poverty’ schools, 55% of black kids attend high-poverty

a massive reeducation effort where people can find a little bit of hope,” said Namora, a Culver City resident. “It seems like those who ‘have’ might have to give a little bit — or maybe a lot — and those who don’t somehow have to take that opportunity and not squander it.” Residents of the hilltop neighborhood of Fox Hills are worried that future planners might not include equitable proposals in the city’s general plan. The Fox Hills Alliance currently objects to city plans for a 712-unit mixed-use development in Fox Hills, advocating instead for new affordable housing to be built elsewhere on city-owned land. “If Culver City really means they are a ‘city for everyone,’ then every neighborhood should share the burden and responsibility of affordable housing and not just the overpopulated communities like Fox — Dr. Manuel Pastor Hills; quite simply it is not fair,” wrote Fox Hills Alliance President Deborah Wallace in an email. “We are only a mere exclusive place over time.” schools, and only about 10% of white kids square mile in size, yet we have nearly 3,000 units of housing and nearly 6,000 Pastor believes Metro’s new investment go to high-poverty-schools,” he noted. in portions of South Los Angeles, Art Namora, who works for an inclusive residents —making us the densest area of Culver City.” including the Crenshaw/LAX Green Line pedagogy committee at Loyola MaryPastor pointed out that conversations extension, is likely to lead to rising home mount University in Westchester, acabout inequality will not be easy. prices there.

Venice Wants the Dope on Legal Cannabis New neighborhood council committee aims to cut through the weeds of complex city regulations Think And Grow Labs’ Franklin praised L.A. for including a social equity program to redress disproportional impacts of cannabis criminalization among low-income and minority communities. In many circumstances, new recreational sales license applicants must include investors who have lived five or 10 years in “disproportionally impacted areas” of the city. “I would venture to say that this social equity program in and of itself is innovation. It’s innovation in creating small businesses and in giving [chances to] people who haven’t had an opportunity to become a viable business,” she said. “It’s something that could be applied to many Venice’s inaugural Cannabis Town Hall featured (from left) Think other industries.” and Grow Lab’s Sherri Franklin, Alexander Freedman of the L.A.

By Kelby Vera The legal commercial sale of recreational cannabis is hardly a cut-and-dried situation, prompting local governments throughout California to establish complex regulatory frameworks for implementing state law. After the passage of Proposition 64 legalized adult possession as sale, L.A. voters passed city Measure M in 2017 to give the L.A. City Council full authority to license and regulate cannabis activity through a new city bureaucracy that decides who can sell cannabis and where it can be sold. In Venice Beach — long a bellwether for international pot culture, legal or otherwise — the local neighborhood council has now formed a dedicated ad hoc committee to help community stakeholders on all sides of the issue cut through the weeds. The Venice Neighborhood Council’s Cannabis Committee held its inaugural public Cannabis Town Hall on Tuesday at Animo High School, with about 40 people turning out to hear a wide-ranging panel discussion about how Los Angeles is implementing and enforcing the laws that govern the sale of cannabis. The panel featured Cat Packer, executive director of the city’s Department of Cannabis Regulation; attorney Bruce Margolin, director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Law’s regional Los Angeles chapter; Ann Lawrence, owner of the Rose Collective on Rose Avenue; Alexander Freedman of the L.A. City Attorney’s Office’s Cannabis Law Section; Sherri Franklin, cofounder of the cannabis startup accelerator Think And Grow Lab; and Aaron

The celebration featured familyfriendly activities, a beer garden and free rides in the Oklahoma-based horse team’s replica 1880 coach. There are two weekly outings of the Westchester Farmers’ Market: 2 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays at the north lot of Westchester Park (Lincoln Boulevard and Manchester Avenue), and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays at The Triangle (the 6200 block of West 87th Street). The Fall Festival marked the Wednesday market’s first special event since Coming to Westchester Park in July. Spring and summer festivals are in the works, said market manager Cynthia Rogers.

Old Friends, New Friends GrandPals helps preschoolers and seniors laugh, play and dance across the generation gap By Gary Walker Ruth Mechur and Buck Jacobs have a date to keep each Thursday. They only met about a month ago, laughing together and sharing personal stories as they painted pumpkins for Halloween. She’s 90; Buck is 4. You’d think she was his grandmother, but she’s his GrandPal. Mechur is a resident of Sunrise Villa, an assisted living home in Mar Vista for the elderly and those battling Alzheimer’s or dementia. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings, a group of young students from nearby Voyages Preschool join Sunrise residents for 30 to 45 minutes to talk, laugh and play games. “I love it. How can you not be happy when you look at those sweet little

faces?” said Mechur, who has three sons, four granddaughters and four great grandchildren. GrandPals began as a collaboration between Mar Vista residents Sherri Akers and Paola Cervantes. Cervantes is the co-founder of Voyages, where she also teaches. After attending a professional development conference that highlighted the brain development benefits of children and older adults spending quality time together, she was inspired to connect her preschool students to surrogate grandparents. “We live in a time where grandparents often no longer live in the home and there’s not that kind of interaction with grandparents and grandchildren,” Cervantes said.

PAGE 12 THE ARGONAUT November 21, 2018

Akers, whose father Ken is a resident at Sunrise, had seen a news article about a preschool that was embedded inside a senior living community and approached Cervantes about bringing some of her students to Sunrise. “The magic of GrandPals is having the activities that inspire social interaction and engagement,” Akers said. Cervantes decided to name the program GrandPals because, while the seniors are not the children’s grandparents, many of they have become close friends. On a recent Thursday, Cervantes and teacher Annel Zavala pulled six students in small covered wagons along the two blocks between Voyages and Sunrise, both on Grand View Boulevard. “It’s the children!” exclaimed Sunrise

resident Maya Zolotaryev as the kids climbed out of their wagons in front of the building. Soon the children are playing games and painting leaves with their GrandPals, who engage their young friends in discussion and coo over their handiwork. Cervantes said she noticed an immediate bond between Mechur and Buck when they met in October and sat next to each other painting pumpkins. “Exploring things side by side — that became the conduit for them to connect. What was amazing was that it happened organically. It was very powerful,” Cervantes said. Akers’ father was entering the early stages of dementia last year when he met a four year-old boy from Australia during

Ruth Mechur and Buck Jacobs, left, paint next to Traves Willett as teacher Annel Zavala looks on (Photo by Sherri Akers) a GrandPals visit. They also quickly became attached. “Leo, the little boy, had his immediate family here but his grandfather had passed away. And almost as soon as they met they forged this special connection,” Akers recalled with a smile. “He started bringing Dad cupcakes and would stand side by side with him, and I would see Dad engage in a way that was unique to the rest of his day.” Dr. Stephanie Mihalas, a nationally certified school psychologist who works with preschoolers and adolescents, said visiting their GrandPals gives Voyages children an early head start toward developing empathic skills. “Bringing preschool children at such a young age to an assisted living center and allowing them to interact with the seniors helps them build relationships and allows them to see outside of themselves. Children innately love storytelling and play because that’s how they learn,” Mihalas said. “The narrative aspect of the relationship is so important. In some cultures, people talking about personal or family histories are how they preserve a culture, because other-

wise real stories can get lost.” Cervantes said the children look forward to their time at Sunrise as much as the seniors look forward to their time with the kids: “They always ask, ‘Is today

“Unconditional acceptance by children can help older adults be more self-accepting of their condition and reduce the stigma of ageism.” — Dr. Amy Rosett GrandPals day?’” she said. Zolotaryev has a daughter, but no grandchildren. A teacher in her native Russia, she enjoys the twiceweekly visits. “I like playing with them,” she said, “and I think they like me.” Dr. Amy Rosett, who specializes in the field of geropsychology — a branch of psychology that addresses the unique concerns of aging — is familiar with programs similar to the GrandPals model and says the children’s visits can often be

and meaningful, and gives them a sense of purpose,” Rosett said. During two visits this month, Zolotaryev and 4-year-old Charley Harris-DiStefano spent time with each other painting and just making funny faces at each other. Last Tuesday, they danced together. Cervantes said the children enjoy dancing and want to include their GrandPals, so they often moderate or restructure their more acrobatic moves so that their senior friends can join them.

Mihalas said that is called social perspective-taking, which typically takes place later in life. “When children that age can have a real-life experience like this, like playing or talking with the seniors, they can learn these skills that much earlier,” she said. “It’s a great experience for both of them,” Rosett added. “Unconditional acceptance by children can help older adults be more self-accepting of their condition and reduce the stigma of ageism.” The visits are especially meaningful for Mechur, who rarely gets to see her great-grandchildren. “I’m so happy that they come. Seeing them makes me feel good,” she said. Akers would like to see programs like GrandPals expanded to libraries and other locations, not just in Mar Vista but throughout the city. “My hope is that this will inspire other senior living communities and preschools to follow our example and do the same thing,” Akers said. “This is an initiative that every senior community should have.” gary@argonautnews.com

Nanibah Chacon’s “Sky People” reflects Diné creation myths as it watches over the gallery

Through a Mother’s Eyes ESMoA’s ‘Matriarchs’ explores the power of indigenous womanhood By Christina Campodonico There are two sides to the Thanksgiving story. In the traditional origin tale, the Pilgrims and Wampanoag people came together to share a meal in 1621. For others, the holiday is a grim reminder of the first Thanksgiving proclaimed by Massachusetts Bay Colony Governor John Winthrop in 1637, celebrating a white settlers’ victory in a military campaign that killed or enslaved over 700 members of the native Pequot tribe. Today, some Native Americans honor those lives lost (and the many that followed) with a National Day of Mourning on Thanksgiving. With that in mind, ESMoA’s “Matriarchs” offers a timely opportunity for people of all backgrounds to pay tribute to Native American communities, especially the women who lead them. The exhibit exclusively features the work of 12 contemporary indigenous womxn artists — the “x” in “women” is inclusive of all femaleidentifying gender identities — and focuses on how these artisans are giving active voice to their communities on key sociopolitical issues. “I see these artists … as being leaders of

several movements,” says Kristen Dorsey, a local jewelry designer who makes work inspired by her Chickasaw heritage and has co-curated “Matriarchs” with Jaclyn Roessel, who is Diné (also known as Navajo). Among them: an environmental movement to protect native lands from extraction of fossil fuels, the rise of a more visible LGBTQ+ movement within native communities, and a wave of activism to seek justice for murdered, missing and sexually assaulted indigenous womxn. A basket with text from the now at-risk Violence Against Women Act woven into it, a traditional Chumash garb ornamented with plastic straws, and portraits of Native American figures swimming in pools tinged with an effluent hue (one photograph shows oil derricks in the background) are some of the pieces that tackle social or environmental issues head on. “What I want this exhibit to teach people is that they can be active participants in these movements, like these artists,” says Dorsey, who explains that native womxn on remote reservations are especially vulnerable to sexual violence, often by non-native seasonal workers.

A 2016 National Institute of Justice Study found that more than a third of Native American women have been raped in their lifetime and a joint study by the University of Delaware and the University of North Carolina revealed that more than twothirds of sexual assaults against indigenous women are committed by white and other non-Native American people. The basket, woven by artist Shan Goshorn, “can teach you to call your representative,” continues Dorsey, “and the importance of reauthorizing [the Violence Against Women Act] and talking about murdered and missing indigenous womxn.” A vibrant energy pulses through much of “Matriarchs,” which, true to its name, also celebrates the beauty and creativity of indigenous womxn, mothers and artists. A cradleboard sparkles with colorful beadwork and a playful “Baby on Board” sign, the image of a female nude with a vivid pink lotus concealing her womb pops off the wall, and a giant painting of a female figure from the world of Diné creation myths watches over the exhibit like a protective force. To say “Matriarchs” has a motherly

touch wouldn’t be going too far, as Dorsey and Roessel both gave birth during the course of putting the show together. “I definitely think [motherhood] makes it so much more personal for me,” says Dorsey as she nurses her three-month-old daughter. “I want the audience to think about how they can become good ancestors to future generations.” “I couldn’t think of a more timely moment to be in an all-womxn, all-indigenous exhibit,” adds participating Los Angeles artist Mercedes Dorame, whose environmentally-driven photographs and art installation meditate on her Tongva heritage. “I feel that all of those involved in the show are culture-bearers and fervent advocates for our cultures that refuse to be extinguished. We will continue to teach, pass down, explore and expand our visions as matriarchs.” See “Matriarchs” between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday or Saturday (Nov. 23 and 24), or on most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through Jan. 26 at ESMoA, 208 Main St., El Segundo. Admission is free. Visit esmoa.org for venue info.

By Jessica Koslow and Angela Matano Holiday shopping can be exhausting. Running around buying gifts, food and all of the other seasonal items on your list can zap hours and energy. You get frustrated. You get hungry. And nobody likes a hangry shopper! In the spirit of the 12 days of Christmas, turtle doves and all, here are a dozen recommendations of where to fuel up with a meal or tide yourself over with a treat in 12 different Westside neighborhoods.

Street: 1Main Mamacitas

White Christmases may not punctuate the holiday season in Southern California, but then again, the opportunity to sip on a coconut or yuzu mojito makes up for a lack of snowflakes. Mamacitas (open inside The Victorian on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights, as well as Sunday brunch) oozes just the right cozy charm for optimal relaxation in between shopping bouts. With a menu that leans Mexican and easily shareable options like shrimp ceviche, chips and Oaxacan queso dip, and pork belly tacos, this café can tide you over or fill you up, depending on your inclinations. Filet mignon and salmon are good bets for those seeking a full entrée. For lighter fare, try the

Calamigas salad: the Brussels sprouts, crunchy and roasted, their flavor amplified by chewy dates and goat cheese, will turn you into a believer. 2640 Main St., Santa Monica (310) 392-4956 | thevictorian.com

Rey: 2 Del SACHI.LA

The burgeoning neighborhood of Del Rey badly needed a good coffee house to succor the thirsty and under-caffeinated. Enter SACHI.LA. Radiating Japanese flair, this café serves up a heavily curated mix of coffee and tea, boosted by pastries from nearby Hotcakes Bakes. If you have yet to try a matcha latte, carpe diem already! SACHI also sells merchandise and cards to make holiday perusing just that much easier. While you’re there, cross the street and pop into Pepe’s Thrifty Shop. Look beyond the furniture decorating the sidewalk and venture inside for hidden treasures. Pottery, dishes, tchotchkes and even some jewelry, sprinkled throughout the store, offer something unexpected for just about everyone. 4574 S. Centinela Ave., Del Rey | (213) 807-6109 | sachi.la

Avenue: 3 Rose Bluestone Lane

The lines at Abbot Kinney eateries can make your tummy rumble just thinking about them.

Opt instead to grab a bite at Bluestone Lane on Rose Avenue, or what is fast becoming Abbot Kinney Lite. Bluestone has locations from New York City to San Francisco, and now they’ve recently taken over part of the space that once was Oscar’s Cerveteca. The food and style is Aussie-inspired — and delicious from morning to evening. Order the bacon & egg roll if you get an early start, or stop by in between boutique browses for the mini bay burger sliders with caramelized onions, fig jam and white cheddar, or choose the seared salmon with fried Brussels sprouts. Relaxing on the pastel-colored outdoor patio screams California Christmas. 523 Rose Ave., Venice (718) 374-6858 bluestonelane.com

4 Sawtelle: Tatsu Ramen

Sawtelle’s reputation as a carnival of culinary delights is well deserved. There are many tremendous meals on the street, from sushi to Southern to burgers, but the one we keep coming back to — the one we crave —is the naked ramen at Tatsu. This noodle house serves up delicious and restorative soups as well, but the brothless bowl of expertly “Q” (chewy, al dente) strands of pasta, drenched in a sesame glaze and topped with crunchy breadcrumbs, is the

Marina del Rey: Irori Sushi

Tucked away in an unassuming corner of the Marina Marketplace mall, Irori could easily fall under the radar. Oh, but once you enter! Once inside the small restaurant you leave the outside world and sink into a traditional Japanese sushi house. Believe me, you’ll feel a million miles away from secret Santa lists, Christmas tunes and forced cheer. Take off your shoes, pad over to one of the near-floor level tables and breathe out. Order some hot green tea or warm sake. The sushi is fresh and light. Other good choices are the black cod and baked, sweet miso eggplant. 4371 Glencoe Ave., Marina del Rey | (310) 822-3700 irorisushi.com

Santa Monica: Herringbone

Herringbone is another restaurant where, upon entering, all your worries seem to melt away.

Clean and bright, with seafood galore, the offerings work well in either big or small doses, making the eatery a great place to stop no matter the time of day. Order something healthy, like the lobster, oysters or tuna tartare, and pair the fish with a frippery cocktail like the jaleberry — a delicious combination of naughty and nice, jalapeño and strawberry. The Buffalo octopus is especially to die for, the grilled meat super tender and the sauce scrumptiously tangy. 1755 Ocean Ave., Santa Monica | (310) 971-4460 herringboneeats.com

Segundo: Caló 7ElKitchen + Tequila

At the new Caló Kitchen + Tequila just east of The Point, the grilled pineapple and chile margarita, served in a crystal highball glass rimmed with spicy salt, is just one of the 12 kinds of margaritas we counted on the menu. Pair your cocktail with pork and pineapple tacos or shrimp ceviche for a quick pickme-up. Snack on hot tortilla chips and creamy black bean dip while listening to the traditional mariachi music, trumpets ablazin’. There is absolutely no way you will not feel the spirit of Father Christmas move through you. 2191 Rosecrans Ave., El Segundo | (424) 269-2322 calokitchen.com

The ArgonAuT REAl EstAtE Q&A

Determining the True Cost to Relocate You’ve just been offered your dream job in a city far from your current home. While you’re excited for the opportunity, it can be stressful to think of all the todos and costs associated with managing your transition to a new community. With careful thought and advance planning, you can make your move less stressful and more affordable.

If you need to start your new job right away, you may need to find a place to rent near your new employer. Look for rental agencies that specialize in temporary housing for executives to find quality properties with more flexible lease arrangements. When you’re ready to purchase a home, a realtor can help you identify desirable neighborhoods and narrow your search to properties in your Housing considerations budget. There are realtors who specialize The biggest challenge to relocation is often in relocation and are especially skilled in selling a home (if you own a property) helping families manage any issues that and finding a new one.

considered when determining your new salary. In any event, as you manage your monthly budget, make adjustments that reflect your new reality and modify your discretionary spending to fit your new lifestyle. Nominal costs You might be surprised to learn that relocating may affect what you pay for insurance and health care costs. For example, if you’re moving to a more metropolitan area, you’ll likely pay more for home, renter’s or auto insurance. Consider the time and possible impact on your budget if you need to change banks, get a new driver’s license and license plates or pay home association fees in your new neighborhood. While these costs may seem nominal, they can add up. If your employer offers financial assistance, be sure to look at what costs are covered. In many cases, employers will reimburse any additional or increased costs you incur as a result of the move. Moving day Coordinating the physical move can be tricky. Ask your family, friends or your

employer to recommend reputable moving companies. Get a quote in writing and compare terms. Make sure you agree on timing as well as cost. Some companies wait for a full truckload before leaving town, which could add weeks to the transit time of your sofa and chairs. If you need temporary storage on either end of your move, factor in that cost as well. Talk to your financial advisor Because there are many aspects of a job change and physical move that impact your finances, you’ll want to consult with your financial advisor. Discuss whether you will maintain your relationship – many financial advisors are accustomed to working with clients virtually. Talk with your advisor to see if that is an option for you.

Homegrown Gratitude

Agapito Doronio’s work is featured in the Mar Vista Art Walk’s Community Art Gallery at Buckwild Shop local and give back on Small Business Saturday We all know that the Black Friday is the official start of the frenzied holiday shopping season in big box stores across the country. But what if prepping for the holidays could be a little more personal and a lot more altruistic? That’s the mission of Saturday’s Mar Vista Art Walk and Make It Mar Vista’s “Inner Giving,” which combines the neighborhood’s signature quarterly cultural event with the power of American Express’ Small Business Saturday to benefit Venice youth services nonprofit Safe Place for Youth. Think of it as an antidote to Black Friday.

Starting at noon, participants exploring Venice Boulevard’s mom-and-pop shops (some offering raffles, free hot cider, classes or gift wrapping) can donate gently used clothing to collection bins at 3838 S. Centinela Ave. (the Coffee Connection parking lot near Venice Boulevard) and the Mar Vista Art Walk’s Community Art Gallery at Buckwild (12804 Venice Blvd.). Show your thanks at Vintage on Venice (12218 Venice Blvd.), where passersby can write down words of thanks and contribute them to a gratitude tree. From noon to 6 p.m., glide through a Winter Wonderland at the corner of Grand View and Venice boulevards, featuring a skating rink, falling snow, holiday lights and photo opportunities

with Santa. The art walk officially kicks off at 2 p.m. with the unveiling of Venice artist KFISH’s sculptural ode to entrepreneurship and art “Lemonade Stand” outside Buckwild Gallery. Live music and painting fill the sidewalks between Inglewood Boulevard and Beethoven Street until 10 p.m., with a special performance by The Fifth Dimension’s Florence LaRue at 1:30 p.m. Four different stages host concerts by local musicians Paul Chesne, Sonic Acrylic, and Runson Willis III with The Holy Mountains, as well as performances by R&B artist Miki Rose, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter DYLLAN, and Team Zanja (featuring local music impresario and multi-hyphenate musician Farmer Dave Sher). Elsewhere, Santa Monica’s Montana Avenue is hosting its own Small Business Saturday with sales and special activities from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (see montanaave. com), and Santa Monica’s Main Street combines its monthly “Last Sundays” event with Small Biz Saturday for a weekend-long bonanza featuring live music, carolers and sidewalk sales till the early evening hours.

The Art of Psychotherapy Mental health professionals showcase their creativity in “Mirrors of the Mind”

Terry Marks-Tarlow’s “Baby Bud” explores geometry, scale and emotion By Kathy Leonardo It’s been said that the practice of psychotherapy can be as much of an art as it is a science. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many therapists are also talented artists. “Mirrors of the Mind 7: The Psychotherapist as Artist,” the annual art show of the Los Angeles County Psychological Association (LACPA), is a juried exhibition that invites doctors, therapists and students of psychology to submit visual artwork to rep the field and inspire their peers. This year’s show, opening Saturday (Nov. 24) with an evening of poetry and music, is the first to take place inside the expansive Santa Monica Art Studios. Co-founder Terry Marks-Tarlow, a Santa Monica-based psychologist, encourages her patients to create some form of art. “This helps develop both the safety to play and experiment, plus the vision necessary to imagine a positive future. It also keeps people exercising their flexibility of mind and body,” she explains. In college, Marks-Tarlow had toyed with becoming a professional artist. She rediscovered her artistic talent organically while working on a book: She needed an illustration, so instead of commissioning it she created it. She continued drawing and branched out to painting, and now she exhibits her work in galleries.

For this year’s “Mirrors of the Mind,” Marks-Tarlow is exhibiting a painting called “Baby Bud,” which incorporates fractal geometry to explore concepts of scale. Also, “there is something tender and vulnerable about placing a baby on top of a delicate flower stem, first explored by the photographer Anne Geddes,” she adds. The concept for “Mirrors of the Mind” was born eight years ago, when thenLACPA President Pamela J. McCrory suggested a show highlighting the talents of association members implementing art into their daily practice and to maintain their own well-being. “I have the honor of watching artists who have participated each year develop their talents and express themselves in powerful ways that transcend language,” says McCrory, who has herself taken up art and hopes to contribute to future exhibitions. “Art speaks a universal language and it levels out all degrees,” adds Marks-Tarlow. “Mirrors of the Mind 7” opens with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, at Santa Monica Art Studios (3026 Airport Ave., Santa Monica) and remains on display through Dec. 1 from 1 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. Tickets are $10. Visit lapsych.org for more info.

PAGE 28 THE ARGONAUT November 21, 2018

Woe Is Meow I lost over 100 pounds. I’m really proud of myself and my new body, so I post pix on Instagram. Disturbingly, I’ve got a few haters — all women! — who come at me saying I’m narcissistic, slutty, a showoff, etc. I thought women are supposed to support one another. How should I respond? Should I post fewer selfies? — So Much for Sisterhood Nothing lasts forever — except middle school, which never ever ends. You’ll be 85 and some biddy will be all “Look at that slut with the pink walker.” There actually seem to be sex differences in the content of social media meanness, according to research by psychology doctoral student Joy Wyckoff and her colleagues. In keeping with previous studies, they found that women online get comments knocking their physical appearance more often than men, whereas men more often get comments “derogating their status” and skills. (Additionally, in their study, it was women alone who got “derogated” for “promiscuity” — a trigger for men’s evolved fear of providing for a kid with some other dude’s genes.) These differences in who gets bashed for what — appearance in women versus status and skills in men — are right in line with the differences I often cite in male and female mating priorities. These evolved out of the differing potential costs from having sex. Because women can get pregnant

and stuck with kids to feed, mate-seeking women are drawn to high-status men — “men with the ability ... to provide resources,” as the researchers put it. They note that men, on the other hand, are “unconstrained” by any sort of “minimum obligatory parental investment” (that is, beyond the initial teaspoonful of sperm). This allows men to prioritize hotitude in prospective female partners, which is to say that men’s eyes make a beeline for boobs and butts, and never mind whether they’re attached to the barista or the senior VP. As for the ugliness you’ve been experiencing on social media, it’s best understood as female-on-female psychological warfare. Chances are these “haters” are looking to chill your enthusiasm to post hot bod selfies, leading you to self-relocate lower on the mate-competition totem pole. (I’m guessing nobody goes meangirl on your photo studies of inanimate objects or Cujo, your teacup Yorkie.) Block the Cruellas. Nobody has a right to your attention or a seat on your social media platform. On a positive note, now that you’ve been schooled in the covert ways some compete, you should be quicker to identify and fend off female underhandedness — on Instagram and beyond. (Nothing like women celebrating other women’s achievements: “Way to go, girl! Who knew the walk of shame burnt so many calories?”)

Bong Water Under The Bridge? I’m a 28-year-old guy in grad school. I love my girlfriend, but I don’t want to have sex with her anymore. I’m hitting the books and writing papers day and night. She still wants to party — go out and smoke pot and drink a lot — which I used to enjoy but now find empty and stupid. I keep feeling seriously annoyed with her choices, and I’m increasingly attracted to other women. Is this the end, or should we try to make it work? — College Boy When you’re slaving away in grad school, it can be hard to feel connected to somebody whose idea of higher education is Googling how to grow pot in your closet. Your eye-rolling at your girlfriend’s choices — to the point where you could sprain a pupil — is not exactly the stuff a peppy libido and a happy future together are made of. In fact, the mounting lack of respect you have for her is the starter emotion for contempt: an ugly emotion that plays out as

sneering disgust. Relationships researcher John Gottman finds that contempt leaching into a marriage is the single best predictor that a couple will split up. Conversely, for a relationship (marital or committed sans paperwork) to have staying power, you need to have the hots for your partner — not just as a sextivities provider, but as a human being. This involves having deep admiration for what they think and value, which shapes who they are and how they go about life. Did you start out in a place like that with your girlfriend? If so, you two should have a chat about where you are now and whether you can get back there. The answer may not be immediately apparent, so you might set a defined period of time to give this a look — with a deadline to make a decision. Ultimately, there has to be enough that connects you to overcome the stuff that divides you, or the only thing that will ever be throbbing in your relationship is that big vein in your neck.

When adopting a pet, bringing home an older new best friend may not be the first thing that crosses people’s minds. But the Wallis Annenberg PetSpace in Playa Vista wants to help change that mindset with its Senior Pet Adoption Fair on Saturday. In partnership with Los Angeles County shelters, PetSpace will showcase senior animals up for adoption from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Not only is November Adopt a Senior Pet Month and the season of Thanksgiving, but in the wake of the Woolsey Fire, animal shelters across the Southland have seen a surge of animals that, like their human counterparts, have lost their homes.

— Yasmin Alpay, Wallis Annenberg PetSpace while hosting a bevy of familyfriendly activities such as a Paws & Pages story time with “Gray Whiskers” author Lisa Wiehebrink, a chance to discover pet products specifically for older animals, face painting for kids, and facetime with pet experts about adopting a senior cat or dog (an animal that’s at least seven years old). “There are a lot of benefits to having a senior pet in your life,” says Yasmin Alpay, Education Program Manager for the Wallis Annenberg PetSpace. “We all know that puppies are absolutely

favorite shoes.” Alpay also notes that a senior pet can be an especially valuable companion to an older adult or couple, or those looking for a more low-key animal companion. “A senior pet is looking for a more peaceful environment — a companion they can cuddle with and a slower pace of life,” she says. “They’re just as happy to be out on a walk or to curl up on your lap.” This Saturday may also be an especially good time to bring an older animal into your home for an even bigger cause, observes

facilities can accept more animals impacted by California’s wildfires. PetSpace has also waived adoption fees until the situation calms down. “This is our way of alleviating that influx,” says Alpay, “and helping our neighbors and our friends in need.” The Senior Pet Adoption Fair happens from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 24) at the Wallis Annenberg PetSpace, 12005 Bluff Creek Dr., Playa Vista.

Stars on a String

Aloysius Crow and Miss Dodo Bird out on the town Bob Baker Marionette Theater plays free Thursday shows at Santa Monica Pier The Bob Baker Marionette Theater — the oldest puppet theater not only in Los Angeles but the entire United States — is being forced to leave its iconic theater in Downtown L.A. The troupe

had struggled financially and the building had been sold out from under it five years earlier, but the end had been stalled — until now. Baker, who died in 2014, originally opened his marionette theater in 1963.To mark the end of their brick-and-mortar run, the company is performing its final

shows in the venue on the day after Thanksgiving — 55 years to the day since the theater opened. But the show must go on for the dancing marionettes and their puppeteers, who will soon begin a series of touring performances with a Thursday evening residency at the Santa Monica Pier merry-go-round. Free shows for both kids and adults happen at 6 and 7 p.m. on Nov. 29 and Dec. 6, 12 and 20. The troupe may not be able to replace the old theater’s floor-to-ceiling red velvet, but the pier’s merry-go-round has plenty of whimsy to do these shows justice. — Brian Marks The Bob Baker Marionette Theater gives free performances at 6 and 7 p.m. Thursdays from Nov. 29 to Dec. 20 at Santa Monica Pier. Visit santamonicapier. org for more details.
