celebrating health with health

A respected friend is teaching a zoom workshop monthly, starting May 22.  Here’s the image I made, to help him advertise it.

Maybe too many words, huh.  And pics with people in them get more attention.  But he might fill his class.  We’ll see.

walks

Yesterday Ming and I went for a walk by the urban river.  It was a good walk.

Then Ming had a doctor’s appointment and got great news.  So we went for a second walk, on the same urban river trail, headed south this time.

“Feels great, celebrating health with health,” I told him.  He agreed.

pretty baseball

I found a baseball.  It was on the ground by a plant.  Felt excited and picked it up, examining it.  Pretty baseball, slightly orange from the red dirt.

Then I was telling Ming how baseballs feel valuable to me.  More than a tennis ball.  Tennis balls spoil kind of quick.  Then you can give them to a dog.  But a baseball has a little more worth.  More than a golf ball also, for sure.

I told him this story about how I found a baseball when I was a kid, and it was coming apart at the seams.  So I sewed it.  I kept that baseball for a long time.  This one I would like to give to a kid I love.

“Says Wilson on it,” I told Ming.  “I don’t know who that is, so I can’t give it back….”

“That’s the brand,” Ming said.

“Yeah, I was just kidding,” I said.

Ming explained the park we were at was actually a soccer complex, named after someone named Wilson, so my joke was complicated.

Oh yes, I had a cat named Mookie long ago.  He was a Wilson also.

flood channel

Kinda hurt my feelings, the urban river was called a flood channel.  Wow, my sacred, beautiful river.  It confused me, like was it just a flood channel?  That sounds so cheap and bad!  It’s just a language issue, but I don’t care for it.

This parking lot dumpster was escaped from its dumpster hut, and I like the pink, of course.

This one is 5x like me, and has a pallet pal, as all dumpsters should!

All these locks were on the fence, at a certain spot, confusing but pretty.  Also like me!  Confusing but pretty.

“Will you go spray paint the mini-coffins over on the pathway?  I’m sure the city won’t mind.”

This tree is covered in gorgeous dark wine flowers.  I think it’s desert willow.  But usually desert willow flowers are paler.

graffiti advice

Look at this stable of sawhorses.

Some graffiti gave us a message, so we tried to follow its advice.  I thought we might find some books, but I don’t think it really says books–it says bosks?

books

You can see written on the back of the shed, an arrow to the bosks.  So we carefully looked in that bin.

bosks

I guess a bosk is some wood.  Yeah, like bosque?  But this is more like scrap two by fours.

Maybe I misunderstood the whole thing?  At any rate, maybe anyone is welcome to this scrap wood?  It’s undefended, in these bins.  Must be plentiful.

sweetheart

Asked Ming to take a pic with me in the shiny building window reflection.  He was tired by then.  Poor sweetheart.

That’s grate.

I like this song Bosque by some friends.  Thank you for celebrating health with health, with me.  Love to all.

the present is a way out

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
