Abbot Kinney Boulevard is all about buying things these days, and it's really kind of sad. The quirky character is virtually gone, and about the only good thing about it anymore (other than the originally cool businesses) is bumping into the people you know and love, though that happens less and less these days.
I was strolling the boulevard today just to see what places were already gone and what had replaced them, and saw a guy with little homemade cardboard signs set up that echoed precisely what I had been thinking. People matter more than things.
Let's all try to remember that, shall we? Globally.
