Tiny Dancer

Good morning, sunshine and soil finally up on the roof with sprouted corn and tomato seeds neatly bedded! Took a kraut/beet/ginger shot a the market this morning, cheers with a stranger who said "to your health." I said "kampai."

 This photo is from a series I took of roommate Sam at Lake Merritt last month (click link to photostream). I'd like to spend more time taking photographs but can't seem to find the time right now. In 3 weeks my mornings will be habitually mine again, hopefully filled with my bucket list of enjoyable things, more gardening, painting, collaging, photographing, biking, and studying. 

The front room mantel, and the second of two dried flower collages I made, another project to tackle in my spare time. I'm feeling incredible energized to begin a new chapter in my life, one of more leisure and pursuing my own wants...once I figure out what those truly are. Creating new things is paramount. 

Wine comes in at the mouth   
And love comes in at the eye;   
That’s all we shall know for truth   
Before we grow old and die.   
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.

- A Drinking Song, W.B. Yeats

Garden Explosion!

I spent the weekend in Boulder with my dear friend Kathryn, went hiking at Chautauqua, saw some awesome art and music: 

like this project: lattice \ work and this one: glow forest

at a music festival, and a techno party at a parkour gym, drank some delicious beer, saw the Morley's, and now my parents are coming tomorrow to visit for a few days. Feeling very grateful for my friends and family right now! 

Over the weekend my spinach grew large enough to harvest a salad from, my peas grow long dangling pods, the squash tripled, and all the trees bloomed. Summer has arrived.... almost....

except for the clouds and rain. hmm.

There are more photos uploaded to my flickr here.
