  3. Went on a run from Baker's Beach to the Golden Gate Bridge.
  4. And found the spot where my grandfather was standing in this picture from 25 years ago.
  5. Chapel of the Chimes
    Room after room, chamber after chamber of beautifully haunting scenery.
  6. Mountain View Cemetery
    What a gorgeous park in Oakland.
  7. Burma Superstar dinner
    A delicious meal. Even better conservation. In talking about the interviews and the podcast, the conversion inevitability shifted to cultural identity. I feel so lucky to have friends engage in such meaningful, considerate, explorative discourse about stuff that matters. At one point, everyone at the table had said the phrase, "Oh. I've never thought of it that way before." Let it always be like this.
  8. Mission Heirloom
    A friend just opened this restaurant in Berkeley. We agreed that the way we felt sitting in this space is the way we'd like to feel sitting everywhere else in the world.
  9. Shangri-La Vegan
    What a spot. One meal that changes each day based on the chef and farm. You simply order the size of that meal. So good for the soul.
  10. Blue Bottle
    Saturday night co-working hours. Edited and wrote for Mass + Volume Episode 1.
  11. Sightglass coffee
    Sunday night co-working hours. Prepped for interview, finished reading "Mona in the Promised Land" by Gish Jen.
  12. Coffee bar
    Monday morning co-working hours. Met a friend and talked filmmaking. Big things on her horizon.
  13. Not quite ready to drink this tea
  14. The banner.
  15. So close.
  16. Desiigner Snacks
  17. Brunch at 6IX
  18. Illuminati
