Ang  All I have to give is my listening ear, my empathizing heart, and my feet to travel the world.

When we went to the desert last week, the daisies and verbena seemed to go on forever.

Spring is surely doing its thing lately. #NoFilter needed for this shot. Just nature, being all pretty. 🌼

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here is the redheaded cat, standing on the washing machine, enjoying his matcha tea that is in his banned book mug with "Ulysses" facing the camera. I think he might actually be Irish. 🤔😂☘

Wednesday morning views.

International Women's Day simply reminded me that this world has so many locally owned, women-ran (in this case, I believe one of the two owners is a female PoC), and PoC businesses...and well, it'd be SO damn boring without them. I mean, COME ON, an iced Mexican Mocha during this heat wave was SO refreshing and yes, it was the only thing I bought today.

Here's to ALL ladies, whether you worked today or not. We are in this together...EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

#TFW You location scout at the park beside your house at the exact same time you are supposed to do a photoshoot tomorrow, to double-check how the light will be, for one of the bestest couples you know that trust you enough to take their first pregnancy announcement photos...only to look at your phone and see it is supposed to be basically the opposite weather tomorrow. #AngryRunOnSentence

So yeah, current mood is shifting between: 😣 and 😠

The sweeping and cozy stormy morning views in Marin you get to wake up to when your friend lives at a neurosurgeon's house.* And if you look closely, you can see that the house has an even larger balcony below.

Asterisk* because you should disregard the early morning lamp reflections in the wall of windows/doors and generally bad phone photos. It definitely does NOT give that ridiculous view justice. 😣😩😬 Also, as much as I love stormy days, I was told on clear days you can see to the Pacific.

Thanks for the pineapple express power outage, Lucifer...and climate change denier #ScottPruitt aka Lucifer.

In my last post, I mention how I think Valentine's Day is "silly" and this is one of the many reasons why I believe that: restaurants can charge astronomical prices for prix fixe, so they can get people in and out quickly. So, B and I stay in, so he can make something just as good for a fraction of the price.

Tonight, for our appetizers, he made his own version of poké and some roasted asparagus sprinkled with romano. For the entrée, he made a mixed mushroom and pea risotto, topped with pan-fried sashimi grade scallops and bacon.

"The bottom line is that (a) people are never perfect, but love can be, (b) that is the one and only way that the mediocre and the vile can be transformed, and (c) doing that makes it that. Loving makes love. Loving makes itself. We waste time looking for the perfect lover instead of creating the perfect love. Wouldn’t that be the way to make love stay?" - Tom Robbins

Happy belated Dateiversary and Valentine's Day to the dude in this photo. The one person that always manages to drive me crazy yet keep me sane.

And Happy Valentine's Day everyone! As silly as I believe this holiday is, the sweetness displayed everywhere today is always nice to witness.

OK looking campus. 😉 #Stanford #architecture

Pretty much found introvert heaven at an airbnb in Santa Cruz. Good records, board games, video games, art, video game consoles, movies, and the sweetest 3-legged Siamese cat named Miyagi. Not to mention the many books and more video games not shown.
