Which is something I need to work on.
Anyway, the coming weekend is shaping up to pretty dang awesome, with a trip to LA for Waits and I, a vegan pop-up fashion shop (with cupcakes for the kid!), a beach picnic with my two loves, and lots and lots of gardening. Maybe even a trip to the animal sanctuary if we feel up to it.
So yes, things are looking up! And now, a few final pictures from my travels, and a few from the time since I’ve been back :
The following photos are from our walk at the Albany Bulb, a “park” near Berkeley CA. The Bulb is a literal rubble heap, a landfill built by the city from demolitioned buildings and discarded everythings. The Bulb, situated on the shore of the San Francisco Bay, became a refuge for homeless youth in the 1980s and 90s. That’s when they began making art there.
In the late 2000s the city started systematically evicting the squatters, and since then much of the art has been removed. The Bulb has changed a lot since I first started visiting, so many years ago. I was glad to take Jeremy there before it’s vanished completely.
Alright, enough Bulb. Moving on . . .
And now of course, it’s time to embrace the gratitude, with the bright, the mighty, Le Love List
Jeremy, on cultural norms: “Yeah, I’m an alien”. // My new and (FINALLY!) updated About page. // When I posted this pic on Instagram, I lost 4 followers. Haha. // Starting a new morning routine that involves getting up waaaaay earlier, and then walking on the beach with my man and my son. Every morning. // Tofu curry noodle soup. // Having a great sex life. // Having a lot of work to do. // Having the kinds of friendships that can weather a storm. // This essay on how to be a white ally. // And this podcast. Every episode. Listen to all of them. // Summer is quickly winding down. These days, still hot and long, they feel so endless. But I know that right around the corner, autumn is waiting. I don’t want it. Not yet. And that makes these few final summer days all the more special. And all the more worth savoring.
Alright everyone, now it’s your turn! I would love to hear your Love Lists, and to know what’s making all of you smile these days. I hope you’ll share and post your lists in the comments below. Let’s spread the love!
I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend that’s full of love and magick!
