Has anyone ever seen this game? I saw it yesterday at my son’s psychiatrist’s
office. You stack up the blocks and match the zen symbols – it looked very
cool. He said he got it on a recent trip to Ojai. But since I’m not planning on
going to Ojai anytime soon, I was wondering if anyone knows of another source
for this game?

The classroom where I read/play games with the children during my lunch time
has a set. The teacher purchased them through:
It’s a great game when I am on a one to one basis.

Thanks! A bit pricey, I’d say, since I can’t write it off like the teachers and
psychiatrists can. But it did look like fun. Maybe I can finagle a way to get
to play next time we go.

Since there are good pictures, if you know someone who can cut the blocks,
maybe as a project you could make them?

Have you been there? What’s it famous for? Why would people want to go there?

Here’s some good reasons! I’ll take the spa, the peaks and the

Orange groves and Mission Revival architecture, Mexican food, and
spiritual retreats . . . Ojai is a bite-size slice of quintessential
Southern California. Half an hour from Santa Barbara on rural Route
150, Ojai (population 8,000) is dominated by the peaks of the Coastal
Range. In the downtown Arcade, antiques shops rub elbows with New Age
bookstores, and restaurants serve hearty home-style fare. On Sunday
mornings, the Certified Farmers Market, behind the Arcade, sells
fresh organic produce as well as baked treats, honeys, and jams.
Spirits are fed at churches and synagogues and at the Krishnamurti
Library or the Krotona School of Theosophy.
The Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is a sprawling, historic resort, with a golf
course, a spa, and good restaurants (805-640-2100; ojairesort.com;
doubles, $279 $340; treatments, $35 $200). The colorful, funky Blue
Iguana Inn, just outside town, has 11 rooms, several with
kitchenettes; its downtown sister property, the Emerald Iguana
Cottages, which showcases the work of local stonemasons and sculptors,
has eight stylish cottages shaded by century-old oaks (805-646-5277;
blueiguanainn.com; doubles, $95 $135).
Bibliophiles will want to browse the sprawling outdoor Bart s Books
(805-646-3755) and the Local Hero Books and Cafe, which is as much a
local landmark for its live music and organic coffee and tea and
home-baked cookies as for the titles on its shelves (805-646-3165).
Los Caporales serves the best Mexican in town (805-646-5452; entr es,

And the organge groves, especially in full bloom – the scent of the blossoms
and the beauty, and the architecture!
