Is thankful for...
My senses. To see beauty. Feel a pillow when I lay my head down to sleep. Listen to music or hear someone laughing. Smell a fragrant flower or a home cooked meal. Tell someone, “I understand”. All these senses, I’m thankful for because they teach me, most importantly, how to love. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Random Thoughts on National Opt Out Day
I wonder how many people are opting out of a full body scan to be patted down? Touch is an intimate act but if you detach, it’s not a big deal, right? I mean…people shake hands. Or, tap someone’s shoulder while standing in line. People even have sex without loving someone. Yet, all this news is a, well, a “touchy” subject (pa dump pump - yes, yes, I’ll be here...
Today was the first day I walked down the stairs and there was no pain. My left knee is healing beautifully. I may not be flying down the stairs…yet. However, I’ll be back in 2011 (even stronger). It’s remarkable imagining all the people around the world that overcome adversity (physically and emotionally). Knee surgery made me feel extremely grateful that I’m able to walk....
It Gets Better! Love, Pixar →
Tumblr Friend, rightmindleftcoast, posted this video and I wanted to share as well. Totally agree that it is one of the best “It Gets Better” videos out there. Enjoy and spread the word (pretty please!)

A History of the Body
Watched ‘A History of the Body’ by the Pagababalik Project at the Bayanihan Community Center. It was a multi disciplinary performance piece about colonialism and its affects on our standards of beauty and physicality. Very powerful and moving. What a great community! It doesn’t matter what color you are, getting involved and supporting such art forms is imperative to our...
My morning ode to Bruce Nauman “Not watch anything so you can be aware of everything.” ~Bruce Nauman
The red orange lights. The droplets falling sporadically on the windshield. Droplet shadows appearing and disappearing. How could I not capture?
Free Polaroid Giveaway update...I can't help...
muntingprinsipe: soulfulapparel: I would never guess that the free Polaroid raffle would get so many traffic. I got many messages asking me if its real, IT IS!!!!!! At first I was giving away one because I was only expecting about 100-500max rebloggers and not 7000. But because there has been so many traffic I will give away another one. I pick which one. Same rules as the last: ...
I love the rain...
One of my best friends is from the east coast and had to deal with all the seasons and the nastiest of nastiest rain and snowstorms. Basically, she moved over to the b(w)est coast and really dislikes it when it rains here. I told her how much I love the rain because night pictures from my camera turn out better. The city shines and the streets have a glimmer. The pulse of the city seems so much...
this could be completely moronic bc i really just...
the lawrence print reminds me of those sf city maps. from upside down i thought of the headphones as the gg bridge, and everything else as an abstrat city. either way, love it.
Since I was a little girl...
I love the SF Fire station siren at noon! Don’t ask why. Just do.

Get your art on! →
Fellow art writer and blogger, LA Aesthetic (thank you, thank you), posted the - artistaday.com - on her blog today! It’s brilliant if you want to keep yourself apprised of goings-ons in the art world but want snippets to start you off on your explorations! Enjoy!
The Public Isolation Project →
I have to admit. I’m hooked and read the blog everyday. It’s a rather interesting social commentary on our ‘need’, perhaps or rather, ‘desire’ to stay connected.

Great (young) band from Seattle…then again, not surprised. Seattle produces some amazing musicians! Please check them out!
I was re-visiting videos I’ve taken here and there and decided to post this one. I’ve always loved car washes. The sounds and how still I am while everything outside of me is in a flurry. I don’t think people meditate enough. So, this posting, a mere 30 seconds, hopefully, will allow you to think about absolutely nothing for 30 seconds. Just being in the present and thinking...
He made recuperating from knee surgery amazing! So observant, spot on comedy, unapologetic, and truthful. He really says the stuff people don’t want to say. One of my favorite comedians…ever!!
You know what's disturbing...
Teenage girls robbing and beating disabled and elderly people. Any violence is horrendous. I guess this is why I really don’t like watching the news. Much of what is covered other than the big bucket stuff (i.e., sports, election, etc.) is all this violence. What is wrong with our world?
