Festive neighborhood house

I may go back and see if I can get it without the headlights of oncoming cars, but they all turned up when I was there...

Western lake lights

Sunset with lake and planet

I usually guess that the bright stars are Venus, and I'm often right, but am not entirely confident.

Pastel southern sky

Gold phase of the evening

I'm getting used to these early sunsets...

Much needed practice

I've been studying Japanese again, but my notes have been terrible looking, so I'm (finally) using the practice sheets from the wonderful hiragana writing lessons at, along with a fancy Tombow brush pen and some holiday paper.  I... have a long way to go before I get these shapes right!

Visually enormous moon

This barely looked real....  What a lovely night.

Elevator of a different sort

Spooky fruit

Food for humans shouldn't look like spicy sea creatures.

It was clever for the distributor to market these rambutan as a Halloween treat: ram-BOO-tan.  (Boo!)

Parade of birds

Busy skies over SF

A friend called me while I was on my way to her neighborhood, asking to put off meeting for another hour, so I got in a nice walk.

I love living here!

We Love Judy Chicago

SO!  Judy Chicago performed an ATMOSPHERE here in San Francisco, and I was lucky enough to be in the crowd.


The de Young put out a great video, which is a documentary of her past Atmospheres work AND the livestream of Chicago's local Forever de Young performance here.  I recommend this video in its entirety.  If you want to start with the local event, it begins just before the 54 minute mark.

It was a fantastic experience, and I feel so lucky to have been there! 

(I also gushed about this on my books/coffee blog.)
