“When he kisses her, storms rise beneath her skin. For she is the ocean, and he, her moon.”

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

We should all be thankful for those who rekindle our spirit.

“Because when something happens, she’s the person I want to tell. The most basic indicator of love.”
-David Levithan

“Perhaps a sin that humbles you is better than a good deed that makes you arrogant”
– Hamza Yusuf

This year Christmas has been non-traditional for me. I decided to focus on the true star of Christmas:

“I wanna burn bright like a star in the night
Fall, fall, and surrender it all
Sing awhile, and believe like a child
I just want to be your reflection
Because when you shine I come alive
I am on fire for you
Oh great light of the world shine on me.”
-Urban Rescue

Did you know there are more stars in the heavens than grains of sand on the Earth?

“That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.”
-Albert Einstein

“Art flies around truth, but with the definite intention of not getting burnt. Its capacity lies in finding in the dark void a place where the beam of light can be intensely caught, without this having been perceptible before.”
-Franz Kafka, The Blue Octavo Notebooks

“They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.”
-Banner carried by student protester in Mexico

Bulleit Rye Whiskey is subdued and musky and pairs perfectly with ginger. This is my cocktail for the season.

2 oz. Bulleit Rye Frontier Whiskey
4 oz. Fentimans Traditional Ginger Beer
2 large ice cubes
Garnish with orange or brandied cumquats
Enjoy! Stay safe.

“I have pretended to go mad in order to tell you the things I need to. I call it art. Because art is the word we give to our feelings made public. And art doesn’t worry anyone.”
-I wrote this for you

Seed + Salt has captured the essence of the West Coast in the simplicity and sustainability of the food and the architecture. If you want to feel at peace and eat something really nutritious, this is the place to be. The food is gluten free and vegan and local. What’s not to love!? They might just be my new favorite pit stop on the way to get the Presidio trails.

This weekend I took some time to be grateful and to consider the flowers, here are some glimpses of my apartment. My inspiration: Honesty, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing, MARCH, San Francisco, Turkish style, kairos, and history.
