Synchronicity LA Salon on the Eel River

Our July Salon took place on the majestic Eel River in the Old Growth Redwoods of Humboldt County.  50 friends of Synchronicity past and present migrated northwards to get our fix of trees, river, and friends!





Sync is looking for a subletter

We here at Synch wanted to put it out there that we are looking for a subletter!  Here’s what you or your friend who’s looking to sublet need to know:
1. We need someone from mid August until Oct 31st. We are open to shorter stays/mulitple subletters if necessary, though just one person staying the whole time would be nice.
2. The spot is in a single room (It’s our hospitality room if you’re familiar with it).
3. The cost would be $400 for one person or $600 for a couple, per month. This includes utilities and access to community food and dinners M-Th.
4. To be considered for the spot, please fill out this short questionnaire and join us for dinner (or a skype conversation if you’re out of the area):
- How long are you interested in staying?
- How can you contribute to the house during your stay?
- Do you feel comfortable being added to the cooking schedule for community meals during your stay?
- What are some of your hobbies and interests?
- How do you think you’ll be spending your time during your stay?
- What are thoughts on the use of alcohol and other drugs?
- Do you have any references you can send us?

Thanks!  Looking forward to hearing from you by email.





It was in LA, on an early Tuesday morning

By our very own Wesley Francis

We caught the mouse in a trap
And it was my job
To dispose of him

I took both the mouse and the trap
And drove down Washington boulevard
But there were no secluded fields

Or little tin can mouse towns
Full of cute mouse families
And Fievel-esque adventures

Just mowed lawns
And apartment complexes
And people tired of hiring pest control

I turned right and left
Zig zagged through side streets
Looking for some sweet mouse habitat

Finally, tired and sleepy in mid-city,
I found myself parked out back
Behind a Ralph’s grocery store

I opened my car door
And shook the trap
And the mouse leapt out and vanished

I’d like to think that he dodged
Corporate sponsored mouse poison
And hungry packs of stray cats

That he navigated the concrete jungle
And found a paradise of bagged pasta
And expired boxed cereals

But we all know the truth
That there is danger everywhere
And the world is not kind

So as I backed up and drove off
Leaving the parking lot behind
I guess there is only one thing I really hoped

That he enjoyed his last final minutes
That his dying was not such a hard thing to do





We were in the Neighborhood News

Our local periodical, The Neighborhood News, did a profile of our house for a recent issue:

BLVD Friendsgiving in a Minute or Less

Every year at Synchronicity LA we host a Friendsgiving Feast for all the folks of our extended community, The BLVD Collective.   Here’s a flavor.





Save Palm Grove!


In our sprawling city, It’s not uncommon to find the most incredible flavors in a hole-in-the-strip-mall joint that’s squeezed between an auto zone, a 99 cent store, and a 24 hour donut shop.  That is certainly the case with Palm Grove Ethiopian Restaurant.  It’s a tiny, unassuming eatery that is full of surprise after surprise.  The food is colorful, delicious, abundant, and very affordable.  The injera is fresh baked, the menu diverse, and the coffee is not just brewed to order, its roasted to order!  It’s the best option in the neighborhood for vegans and vegetarians, and the top choice for the folks of the BLVD Collective.  We are a group of about 60 people on and around Westmoreland BLVD that share ideas, meals, friendship, and monthly art events.  When we heard that Palm Grove was struggling, we put our heads together and thought up a way that we could use our power in numbers to help them out.

On Saturday we hosted a “Save Palm Grove” lunch and filled every one of the 30 available seats.  It was important for us to come together and show the owner that our community values her business.  And we wanted to make sure we strengthened their presence on Yelp.  A positive Yelp profile is really essential for a restaurant in an area that doesn’t have much foot traffic.  A few of us are photograhers, so we snapped some shots during the lunch to spice up the Yelp profile.  And after the lunch, we hosted a “Yelping Party” and all created accounts and gave positive, well thought out reviews.  The event was a great success, and will hopefully help bring more business to our neighborhood treasure!

 





Sync is 5 years old

Hooray!
