This morning I photocopied three new zines: functionally ill 15, hat genius 3, and fish letters 2. I had made two new zines at a time, before, but this is my first time doing three. Kinda crazy. Maybe I should have held back. But when it’s done, it’s done.
No Biggie City #1, early early spring 2013, Olympia, WA was mailed to me in mid March and I read it just yesterday, at the end of April. It floated around in my backpack for a while… Visually it’s chaotic and stimulating, which turned me off initially, but it actually wasn’t difficult to read. I […]
How silly are we to have April pumpkins on the railing outside of our apartment? In the background you can see the wisteria vines that grow all over the neighbor’s car shelter and climb over to our balcony thing. Time to compost the pumpkins?

I’m taking it easy. I only slept for one and a half hours, not last night but the night before. So I’m not over scheduling myself. The white sage in our community garden plot is blooming. Ming cut off some of its huge stems for me. He did the same last summer, and I kept […]
Ming likes trilobites.
Tonight was a puja for Rama. It was supposed to be Saturday, but Swami was in Washington DC for the dedication of a new temple. We sang a lot at practice right before the puja. I felt like my head was going to vibrate off. Then I felt that way again during the actual puja. […]
We went for a brief trip to a farm our friends live at. It’s called Earth Abides and is a Catholic Worker Farm. We did a little work moving some stakes and string from one bed to another for snow peas. My string got very tangled, but eventually it all worked out. There was a […]
