right now

obsessed with:
  • spaghetti squash, what? so. good!
  • the last gasp of tomatoes and peppers / making my own HOT sauce
  • All Over Creation a page turner, tear jerker. you'll never look at russet potato the same.
  • Podcasts! I'm perhaps last person on the planet who's figured out how to listen to podcasts on my phone. Catching up on studio 360, this american life, stuff i should've learned in history class...and this is just. the beginning. yes.
  • this film: Searching for Sugar Man 
  • and this song:

Things to learn before the weekend

Ayala Cove - Chart of docks and moorings
Or Things to learn before one plans an overnight sail to Angel Island:

1. How to sail in 15 knot winds on the Bay.
2. How to tie up to a mooring ball according to this map:
3. How to tie real knots. Perhaps this skill should be learned before task 2?

loving here and now

reconnecting with an inspiring colleague.mentor.friend and discovering just a taste of all the amazing things he's done in the six years we've worked apart. enough to fill a lifetime. here's a teaser: find the man behind the prickly pear.

and one of the things I love most about this city I love. Head over heels.Just when I think I'll find a way of getting over this hilly, foggy, expensive city I walk down a new block and find the jungle house. And here I am, back to head over heels.

going back to az

 Planning the annual AZ pilgrimage. 
Last year it was all about old friends, old haunts and favorite cousins. 


Ready. Set. Go!!

This year? South side, north side, & in between. I will be a tourist in my hometown. I will return to the desert of my youth, without regressing. But mostly, I can't wait to see my crew!!!!!!!!!!!!
