1. We went to The Beat so I could ask if they were getting Sufjan Stevens’ new album on November 13th. The guy told me they would get a lot in. I’m so there! 2. We saw / heard someone playing bagpipes out in front of a Starbucks while we were taking a walk, the… Read More »
Today we went to Pancake Circus. I was creeped out by all the clownage. But I had passed by so many times, and finally I ate there! I told Ming as he paid the bill, “I feel like a real Sacramentan now.” I also told him how I expected it to be hipsterish or somehow… Read More »
Today we went to William B Pond Park at the end of the Arden to see our friend J. I liked the river. Then we followed her to her mom’s house where she gave us two small pumpkins. I am in so much pain and so sick of it. I see a doctor again this… Read More »
Today’s big thing (besides the bucket being stolen) is that I went swimming in the American River. With all my clothes on. Ming pocketed my cellphone and keys and wallet. I didn’t go very deep because there was a dense riverweed. But I got in all the way up to my neck. It was fun… Read More »

Phone booth at a trail head. Elephant seals sparring. Elephant seals.
This is at McKinley Park. This is Consumes. None of my sandhill cranes pictures really turned out. Those two are at Bodega Head. Here’s a dudleya. And here are distant waves.
It’s home life again. We watered the garden. The fish tank outside is bubbling. Not as much mail as I thought there’d be. The journey yesterday was rough. I cried on the train. Do I always cry on the train? Today I posted some reviews on my zine review site. I’d abandoned it for almost… Read More »
Hazel Newlevant’s comic Ci Vediamo is appealing and serious. It’s wordless, except for the dedication. It’s about loss and longing. Two characters miss one another and think of one another. They romantically pine. The drawing is beautiful, and the ideas are strong. The pace is generous. There’s a gorgeous simplicity at play. It’s simple, but… Read More »
