When I’m in Las Vegas, the grackle is my favorite bird. I love its beauty, its long tail. I love its tropical-sounding cry. The lustrous plumes, the beautiful eyes. Grackles are all over this neighborhood, and when I hear them or see them, I feel happy. Pic from Wikipedia!
This morning it rained a little bit at the serving site. It was cold and windy too. I helped Ming with bread, which was bagels today, some of them moldy. I did some quality control. Then they wanted me to help get out bowls for the salad guy. The salad guy was hawking his salad […]
So windy here today. But cold in the house. I took my sandwich and apple outside to eat because even with the wind it’s warmer. But I got desert grit in my sandwich. Crunchy! This morning we served the hungry and washed dishes then peace vigiled. We ran into some Anonymous people wearing their masks […]
We traveled a lot. We arrived safely. I’m safe. I’m writing on Ming’s laptop and it sounds like it’s getting ready for takeoff. Today’s very strange, and BOB behaved. We stopped at a grocery store near Victorville. It was a Stater Bros. This blog post doesn’t make all that much sense, and I’m sorry. It […]
Yesterday we went to the park and walked around. But there were loud helicopters flying above, and we didn’t really walk all that far. We sat at a picnic table and talked. Then we went to a café and split a decaf white chocolate raspberry mocha. It was great. We talked there too. Then we […]
I found this old picture on my phone. It’s of some graffiti in Berkeley on the marina about a year ago.
This morning we brainstormed things to do. Dad said my brainstorm would be a light shower. I said we should go whale watching, something different, to be on a boat together. Parents said no. Then Mom and I cut pictures and words out of magazines. We’re going to collage. Next we’ll go to the pier, […]
At the women’s health clinic they had no record of me. Weird. I survived that. Then we bought some chocolate. Now Ming’s talking about the automatic sprinkler system with our neighbor. Not our main neighbor who’s moving–a different one. I packaged up some zines for an old friend. Packing, crossing things off lists, emails and […]
Today I went to a support group meeting and we visited two friends. I’m tying up some loose ends before we leave on a trip. I made some delicious peanut sauce which we ate with broccoli and potato. I’m really tired and ready to go to bed. But it’s only 5. More day than energy […]
