A few images, from our trip to Boston a couple of years ago.
I’d never been to Boston, and maybe was much less excited about being in Boston than I was about being in New York. We had just left New York, taking the train into Boston. It was our second trip to New York, a very short one. Only enough time to see a few sights, eat some great food, visit wonderful friends– and to get engaged, over a glass of wine in the East Village.
How could a week in Boston compare to the magic of Manhattan? It was hot, it was muggy, it was.. Massachusetts. But we explored, most of the time with family, and I found so many things to photograph.
So much history, so much good food, so much brick!
So many things that I knew my father would love to see, if he ever gets a chance to visit.
By the time we left Boston and made our way back to Los Angeles, I found myself missing it… I missed sitting in a cafe on a hot afternoon, sipping Campari and soda… I missed the gelato… the beautiful buildings.
Boston, I am thinking of you, today.
Taking a moment to mourn musician Jason Molina, today.
I have so many memories- both fond and profound- of the way his music and lyrics impacted my formative years. So many lessons learned about love– and alcohol. No doubt that he will be missed by the people who loved him most, but that his music will live on for years to come. Rest in peace, Jason.
I am proof
that the heart
is a risky fuel to burn…
Brought home some new friends, recently..
Welcoming spring with new growth, and some vintage yellow ceramic pottery.
Read something earlier today about putting intention and energy into the world during the month of March, about what you want for your future. So here it is: In the month of March I want to take significant steps towards opening my own brick + mortar store.
Those of you who know the saga know that I have been at this for a very long time, and, well: it’s about damn time, don’t you think?
My focus has shifted from the original plan that I formed the day that I moved to Los Angeles in 2009.. that idea was carelessly shared with too many people, and that store is no longer mine to open. Onward, upward.
So here’s to having zero doubts that I can do this!
