  • end of the blog?

    It’s true, this blog may change or die soon, not sure really. I wish I did! There was an interesting cloud pattern above Coit Tower and Peter & Paul church this morning. I thought of taking a photo, but sometimes photos reduce the beauty of something. You have to work so hard to get it […]

  • washing the pyramid #2

    So I took a photo and will upload it soon. Do they raise up the platform and just leave it there for a week or what? It’s been in the same place, I swear, each morning.

  • washing the pyramid

    I have a 2 block hill right when I step out my door, and it kind of tells me “damn you’re sleepy” or “damn you’re perky” each day. Well today was the not so perky day. The sun was bright out, and … Wow I can’t believe I haven’t written about this – they’re washing […]

  • eastern sun

    I woke up early and walked out to the tip of Aquatic pier. The sun was shining from the east, a surprising thing to me since I’m such a night creature, I usually just see the sunset, versus the sunrise. No tourists!!! Fisherman’s Wharf without tourists is like Disneyland (without tourists). Beautiful, quaint, quiet, peaceful. […]

  • SUV flipped

    I’m crossing in front of Aliotos’ office buiding and halfway across the intersection hear a few horns and a crash (glass, the windshield). Look up Columbus, up the hill, and see a SUV fly into the air, flipping. It’s awesome in the horrific, improbably way. Black maybe, a little honda is stalled in the intersection. […]

  • Boob Bus

    The mammography mobile bus was parked outside of Washington Square park. No news, just that it was there. I went through a weird novelistic fantasy that some kids did it just as a prank and one of them found out she actually had a lump. Well, that thought and/or storyline got me as far as […]

  • Effects of Daily Walk

    I always wonder about affect or effect. Went to the doctor to finally lick this cold and now I’m on a 3-drug cocktail. Well, I call it that to spice it up. Seems like the Daily Walk has given me allergies! I can’t be positive but it sure makes sense. In addition to the 1.6 […]

  • back by popular demand.. the Daily Walk!

    Ok this morning, through North Beach, the following was observed. The guy who hoses down the sidewalk on the block with the chocolatier/halfwayhouse/chinese-duty-free stuff, is he paid for by the condo association of the building or the Nail House? The Chinese duty free place caters specifically to Chinese tourists, no one else. All signs in […]

  • purpose of this blog

    Originally, it was actually a workout blog that I was going to share with my mom and sis’s, but now it’s evolved into a “local color” blog after several life events meant I was going to move to a new neighborhood, and my exercise and appreciation of my new neighborhood combined in daily walks to […]

  • today, obsessed by french lady

    I surruptitiously read the book everyone’s reading, French Women Don’t Get Fat, and she doesn’t mention anywhere my lovely milk and cookies pre-bed snack. Dagnabbit. These people kind of share my thoughts on it, and they’re French, and so therefore they are right… discusison on French Women. For th record though, there are some interesting […]
