Overlook (views from the Hills)

Last week Friday I spent the morning in Sibley Volcanic Park (part of a lengthy California Geography project I'm working on for school) and we stopped at the overlook on the way back down..

Overlook.. Oakland to SF
You can see Oakland and San Francisco..


Here's the set from Sibley (minus stuff with my face in it..)

The sky was so blue.. something to recall as the rain moves back in the next couple days..

new poetry blog

So I'm migrating (eventually) all the poetry I have on here over to here:

Collecting the Days

That is also where future National Poetry Writing Month items will be posted. Even if it's only once a year, having several poems, etc. posted (where I would rather have Bay Area things) seems a bit much. I may also add older pre-internet things there as well as a back-up to the hard copies I have filed away.

Homework Break..

Alexander wants you to know he's the #1 Cat of Berkeley..

Who am I to question? Photo taken earlier today when he 'demanded' I desist from studying to have a snuggle break. I was lucky to get this image as he likes doing his nails (making 'biscuits') on me.

Walk "Fail" =)

Cedar  & Euclid
Walked up Cedar thinking: "..Yeah! today's a great day to go up into the hills!" My calves had other plans.. so I turned around and walked back down..

Oh! but it was worth the short walk uphill..

Golden Gate view..

not so much a 'fail' as a long walk postponed.. the view was still great!

"Live Outside"

Wednesday the 23rd, a few hours were spent in the city.. including some time at the library to pick up some books.

After the library I was about to head back to the Eastbay and spotted this mural on the side of the Holiday Inn just off Market and 8th..
"Live Outside" by Amandalynn

The light wasn't ideal on one end so it's a bit over-filtered.. (which is my fault)

Holiday Inn

"Live Outside" by AmandaLynn

with very little research (and making sure to photograph the artist tag at the bottom of the piece) I found out the name of the mural is "Live Outside" and the artist is AmandaLynn..
