Would You Have Called the Police?

From My Friend Sharon’s Timeline Leaving IHOP the other day, the manager called after us, ‘Be careful out there. Satan‘s at work!’ Fascinating twist on ‘Have a nice day.'” Her status update made me laugh. She’s not just a brilliant writer (professionally, actually), her beautiful karma invites interesting energy into her day-to-day life. And at Work He Is Indeed… We… Continue reading

Scared the Hebegebees Out of Me

I swear! I must have greatly angered the weather deities! I’ve been experiencing too many weather events of late! I tweeted on March 31st that I saw, no, experienced a dramatic lightning strike just outside the window of my office. Here are some of the details… Just as it struck, the really loud sound of the torrential rain stopped. Total… Continue reading

You Live in a Small Town When…

I really like living in Sausalito. It’s the smallest town I’ve ever lived in (between 6,000 and 7,000 residents); yet, I feel as though I live in a big city with San Francisco just across the bridge. And then there is the Marin Headlands in the back yard… But I was recently reminded that I do in fact live in… Continue reading

Radio Sausalito

I finally got around to getting my haircut. Yes, I go to the Caledonia Street Barber Shop here in town. Today I noticed the music on their AM radio: Radio Sausalito: 1610 on our radio dial. It was some awesome vintage jazz. I had no idea Sausalito has an advertising-free, 24 hour jazz radio station. I’m lovin’ it! Great jazz!!… Continue reading

Sunday Morning at Battery Spenser

I thought, “Well, while I’m here…” So, after shooting the pano of the Golden Gate Bridge, I shot this pano of one of the many batteries that guarded the entrance to the bay: Battery Spenser. Our exit into Sausalito is the Spenser exit, named after this battery which is close by.… Continue reading

The Golden Gate Bridge

The fog In the bay area is thick this morning, and I hear the fog horns blasting from the bridge. Two days ago I got up early to shoot the bridge at sunrise (from Fort Baker). I then went to Battery Mendell in the evening to shoot the Point Bonita Lighthouse at (what turned out to be) the non-existent sunset.… Continue reading

Bay Area iPhoneography

This afternoon we meandered around Sausalito and Point Bonita. I just watched the parade of lighted boats and the holiday fireworks (from the house). What a wonderful city! To get more familiar with kitCam, I shot a few pics along the way. You can see from the larger images just one of the reasons why I much prefer kitCam to… Continue reading

Piano Delivery Truck Blocks Road for Hours

I was very excited to finally be getting the piano on which I practiced as a child. It left Florida at the beginning of October and has been winging its way to Sausalito ever since. It was delivered today. Well, maybe, kinda, sorta. I stressed to the company that our street was exceedingly steep. I told them about how the… Continue reading

A Reminder from the Universe?

2012 has been a very tough year on the family front with numerous challenges, few of which have I shared on my blog. Two such challenges continue to unfold even now. And today, in downtown Sausalito, I was reminded that even those things which may appear completely rough-hewn, lopsided, and disconnected in life are part of a larger balance to… Continue reading
