Lily Allen – Fuck You

I keep meaning to…

I find myself planing to do things. Great things, fun things.. meaningful things. But i also keep realizing that those things remain un-finished, un-said, un-started. Today i will do great things. Today i will say meaningful words. Today i will begin something grand. Well actually, maybe i’ll wait until tomorrow.

This was my first time at the Solstice Parade. I was told about the naked bikers… i thought i understood, but as it turns out i was not prepared for the number of penises flapping in the wind. I got a ton of photos of the parade but not very many good ones of the naked painted bikers.

Vampire Weekend – A Punk

Things that make me happy: A random list.

The feel of water on my finger tips.
The gust of wind that arrives in a subway station before the train.
Thunderstorms.
Unexpected hugs.
Swinging ( like on a swing).
Boarding an airplane.
Staying up late and sleeping in.
Making snow angels.
The smell of mint.

First harvest from our tiny garden. My lovely radishes. They are spicy and crunchy and yum yum yum.
