Let's bang out 2013:
cut our bangs,
light the world on fire,
bang a drum...
Keep blazing a path
to self-realization,
and remembering to share laughs
and give love
along the way.

Lastly, do it in style...

I used to hike hours to get to an island waterfall that entailed descending into a valley,
scaling a muddy slope I swear felt like a 90-degree angle,
with only an old hemp rope and tree roots to hold onto.
Of course all this effort involved a prize,
which was the amazing aforementioned waterfall that spilled into a pool.
My favorite thing to do was get inside the fall, that was as tight as a closet,
and feel the pounding gush of water fall on my head.

Forward, onward, creative thinkers...

When I was island-bound, my friends and I would swim in the ocean during a full moon's night, and watch our wading shadows lightly reflected straight down onto the sand floor. Some nights I napped near a rocky cliff till the sun broke on the horizon. The marriage of the sun and the moon.... I love the concept of this artist's piece
--I wish I could sleep there.

I like this conversation... There's this Star Trekiness with an aesthetic sensitivity going on.

It's wet and dreary and rainy, and I've been sick with a festering cold for weeks. Apart from popping vitamin C like a mad woman, I'm finding my slight addiction to Polyvore as soothing as a zinc-filled cough drop. In my parallel universe, I'm faring the weather in these...

More flies with honey, but make sure your intent is on point.
There's a balance in the daily exchange, help me float above the tightrope.
Speaking from the inner voice is more difficult than looking someone in the eye.
When response to crisis is swift, why is it questioned?
Lend me your hand....

I've been dodging the fog all day. I saw it tumble into the neighborhood, riding some kind of afternoon tide. Not wanting to wear covered-toe shoes just yet, and I don't mind the bit of brisk discomfort as the seasons click.

Hello you hot soundtrack you. Driving force. Monastic sportswear. Animal cut-out spaces are the new sexy. Forget ankle straps --wrap the calf down to the toes.

p.s. Mad Decent can seriously do no wrong...

Excuse me while I kiss the sky...

I was dancing like a leprechaun with a pot of gold.
Double rainbow siting on my evening walk tonight.
You know, natural beauty really does move me to tears.

Let's hug and say we did.

I'm loving the feeling of oversized, baggy, baggy, baggy clothing right now. Not like, "saggin' drawls" baggy, but literally oversized and wide. Accented with heels of course!

I randomly found this girl's blog via Opening Ceremony, and voilĂ , she REALLY gets it. Her major shark tooth necklace is like a new kind of bling, doncha think? Found myself smitten by her style, and literally read through every post in her archives. I admire her nod to minimalism, mixed with vintage and menswear basics.

San Francisco Summers are often untimely, so when the sun comes out, you make the most of what you can. On clear day, my friend Sam had the brilliant idea of biking through Golden Gate Park to Ocean Beach. Off and away....

James showed up with Chica on board.

The Conservatory of Flowers had dahlias in bloom.

and this prehistoric-looking, spidery, spiky lovely...

We made it!

After lunch, Chica-in-a-basket & I took in some sun at perhaps the most awesome parklet ever.

I perused General Store, one of my favorite shops. A bowl of colorful knitted booties with angora vamps --kawaii handicrafts.

I was obsessed with this piece: a giant faceted quartz set in drippy bronze.

General Store's backyard. Check out the little paned house to the right.

and this big, beautifully worn table. Can you imagine morning coffee or sharing a meal here?

The beautiful array of natural and manmade.

We stopped by Outerlands to check out their menu. I was busy checking out their floor. Layers of history and concrete. On a side note, I picked up these leather sandals at a garage sale for a song! They turned out very beach, bike and adventure worthy.
