Man on Wire

"If I die, what a beautiful death to die in the exercise of your passion." --Philippe Petit

Boots all dirty, sexy and thin

Oh MAN, Ryan Adams rocked me again, how he does me right. He always delivers and last night was absolutely no exception. I sold my extra ticket and went alone, so it was all mine. They played until 1:30am, (started at 10:15) and I danced all, danced all, danced all night. YES. I love how he absolutely brings the rock, and everyone danced, because you just can't not. He and those Cardinals man, they know how to do it.

Set highlights (and he played two sets) include:
*Beautiful Sorta
*Shakedown on 9th ST
*Cold Roses
*When the Stars go Blue
*Easy Plateau

Ultimate happiness, feeling and life is a Ryan Adams show.
He gets me through.

We layed about in our summer skin

Last Sunday Court's baby shower showed off this little gal in her belly (and Courtney is so darling pregnant).

Home to San Diego for a few days of sunshine and good friends. So great to catch up with people I love, and relax, take it easy in their presence, knowing they care for and understand me. (Hmm, why didn't any of the boys take pictures with me?) A week of non-stop chatting, catching up, and loving every minute of it, especially these girls:

Time at the Sousa beach house felt like a true vacation, late warm nights of Olympic watching, waking up to sun and salt water, with no pressure of running errands, making lunch dates, or getting things done except spending time with this best girl, and her husband and my new four-legged sidekick Baxter:

JAWS in 3D

YES. I love Dolores Park, I love movies outside, I love picnics, and I love Shi-town. Tonight was movie in the park night, and this month it was in Dolores Park, and JAWS, IN 3D. (Which didn't end up really working out for me. Perhaps it was the glasses, perhaps it was the lack of my own glasses? Perhaps perhaps perhaps.)

words on pages

Goodnight Unaccustomed Earth you were every bit as wonderful as I knew and hoped. I shut your covers, leave your pained but dreamy love stories, and sink myself into Dark Star Safari. Oh Theroux, envelope me in your adventure until I can one day have my own.
