Another morning with Martian, featuring John Butler.

@shaheenigans took this picture on his iPhone 7 Plus on portrait mode and now I never want to shoot w my Fujifilm because what's the point robots will just beat us at everything

Just me and the little guy lounging around on a Saturday.

The little guy in our Lyft this morning. Mom left him with me while she has a girl's weekend in Santa Barbara, so he and I have the weekend together. Looks delighted. @happygolilley

My yogurt prep was extra OCD today.

This is my room. I normally stiffen up when I have stuff all over the place. I've convinced myself that if my surfaces aren't clean or if my clothes aren't folded, I have, in some way, lost a grip of my day-to-day life. Like my room saying, "Hey man, you should get your shit together." This morning, however, I didn't feel that anxiety. Not sure why, but I think it had something to do with how the light was shining in. It was 6:14am when I took this picture, and everything looked weirdly magical.
It's like my room was sunbathing, drinking a coffee, and as I walked in and it said, "Hey man, take it easy and fold those clothes later. And don't worry about the dust on the mirror. Or your sweaty running clothes hanging off your chair. Here, have some coffee." (I guess I'm continuing with this anthropomorphic room.) Instead of taking my room up on the coffee, I said, "Hey, wait. Don't move. You look really good right now and I'm about to post this on the Internet. It should always be 6:14am on May 17, 2017, just so you always look this good." And my room was like, "Maybe I always look this good and maybe your perspective is different today." And I said, "You know what? Maybe you're right, Room. Maybe I'm just feeling extra good today. Maybe it's not just about the light at 6:14am." My room sat there, unflinching, just hanging out with it's coffee mug and didn't say a thing. I now realized that the room was drinking two coffees from a French press that was made on Sunday and was not at all fresh. It just let me sit in that thought and wonder. "You're pretty wise for a room, Room." And then I hit post and went on with my day.
Happy hump day!

This is one of my favorite places to run to. The best and worst thing about it is that I have to run straight down the entirely of Market Street from the Mission to get there. Refreshingly weird dose of perspective passing by all the happenings β€” from needles and public defecation to art collectives, corporate landmarks, and everything in between. At the end of it, though, is this gorgeous view welcoming anyone and everyone to San Francisco. By the time I get there, I'm already 2.7mi into a run, so unless I plan on running 6+ miles, this is basically the only "pretty" thing on the entire run, but the journey is always worth it.
Here are some photos of the Ferry Building from my last few runs there over the last 2 weeks.

So many people recording me recording them recording me recording me recording them recording me recording them recording...@jaiwolfx
