Pictures from California II

Last set.

I'll leave you with words on a rock that explain the meaning behind a set of sculptures in Walnut Creek, California (including the one above.) From the collection titled "Imagine":

If you've ever dreamed before, dream again.
If you once had hope, here take it.
Believe in love and celebrate life.
Find purpose and pass it on.

My weekend was inspired by this Vogue video and a dash of delightful spontaneity.

I actually liked The Juice Press so much that I think I will make it my monthly treat (this weekend's drink was The Fountain of Youth. So healthful.) More generally, walking around Greenwich Village in the rain, with yellow taxis around to remind me where I was, felt magical, and I look forward to going back again. The West Village sure is charming, but I think the larger area covered by Greenwich Village can be dreamy too. Since moving to New York, I've covered its main features, but I look forward to discovering its less famous corners.

Also of note this weekend was Pistachio-Gianduia gelato for dinner (a first!), Rose Black Tea for work, and a rush of inspiration for life. Come this weekend, I will be ready for fall.

Pictures from California: San Francisco


One more set from my trip to California a few weeks ago. Sometimes, it's worth taking a fourth (or fifth) look.

Remembrances of things past: lovely (and sometimes amusing) street art, the Golden Gate Bridge over the Pacific Ocean, neatly cut trees, boats sitting on the water, and colorful houses. One way to start a weekend.

On the Sill


Eucalyptus makes me happy because it reminds me of my first violin teacher, and the eucalyptus is referenced in a song I think I first heard on Galgalatz. I also like its scent. It's been a lovely addition to the kitchen this week.

From Houston St.

These are the uptown murals from the 1 line on Houston St., which are part of a 1994 series called "Platform Diving," by Deborah Brown. They're as dreamy as their downtown counterparts.
