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… Read More »
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… Read More »
who I am
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… Read More »

Then we went to a café and split a decaf white chocolate raspberry mocha. It was great. We talked there too. Then we… Read More »
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,… Read More »
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… Read More »
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… Read More »
