These are my brothers. We hang out. We have a good time. We look alike. Our favorite pastime is sending awkwardly close-up selfies to each other in group texts. The one on the left is older. The one on the right is younger. I’m the oldest. The youngest just turned 21. So they came to […]Read More O Brother, Where Art Thou?
I think it’s the 79th anniversary of Golden Gate Bridge. Happy birthday, dude. You rock. Keep on going. This used to be my view every. Single. Day. I miss it. It probably still could be my view, if I didn’t mind paying an arm, a leg, and my firstborn (and possibly my second) in order […]Read More Climbing a Mountain (Figuratively)

The sky was blue, the waters […]Read More Trailing Into Autumn: Sauntering along the Billy Goat Trail
We went stargazing last night and saw a few shooting stars from the annual Perseid meteor shower, and while we only saw a couple meteors, it was fun traipsing around the back hills of Berkeley and other parts of the East Bay (alas, Tilden Park was a bust– too much fog) in search of a […]Read More Star gazing
