okay all…
this is my last night before i leave the west coast. in california, but didn’t make it out to los angeles before dark…
i have been absolutely humbled by the beauty and kindness of strangers on this trip.
after austin, we stayed a night in amarillo, tx. dinner was amazing…i had bbq brisket at the country barn. check out their menu.

there is also an incredible donut shop there, called…the donut shop. i didn’t get one of these for breakfast, but in hindsight should’ve.

the weather in texas was miserable; i have never seen so much fog in my life! but as we neared the border with new mexico, things started looking up.

yes, things got much brighter…

we skirted through to the painted desert. let me just say that if you have the opportunity to come here, DO. it took my breath away many times.

and i fell in love with petrified wood again…loved it when i was a kid, for some reason.

and then on to california, so that i could catch my plane today… :)

cool concept…at a swissmiss meeting recently, folks were asked to finish the sentence “if i would make a documentary it would be about…”

what would yours be about?

I adore the second photograph! So hippie romantic. I know this may be off subject, but I was shopping at the Free People store in Glendale and must say that I LOVE the tunes being played in the store! Is there any possible way to get the list of the tunes playing? I'd really appreciate it :)

herbert pfostl

i found herbert pfostl’s book “to die no more” about a year ago…somehow i can’t help but visit his work every couple weeks…it inspires me beyond belief.

his blog is very intelligent, thoughtful and just plain perfect, too…

america continues to inspire and enchant.
since i last wrote, my friends and i were in virginia. our next stop was asheville, nc. this is rebel, my backseat travel companion.

our blue ridge mt morning was unbelievable.

from there, we ended up in new orleans. thanks to aforementioned cat, we got a sweet pet-friendly hotel room just outside the french quarter.

and then…we hit austin. and while we were at dinner, my friend spotted an aspiring designer – christie – who was wearing one of our knit tops. she loves fp, and i appreciate that she let me take her pic for the blog. :)

be good! more later…

Heh, your backseat companion looks scared. Or maybe that's just a wide eyed cat thing. I have two cats and I can't even get them to stay in the house, much less a back seat. Cool cat!

I'm so jealous of your road trip adventures! i'm itching to plan one now :)

monday quote

“the art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.”
- charles langbridge morgan

i absolutely love this quote, i think i'm going to make a mural of it on my wall ;D

what’s the story?

before my friends’ and my spiritual reading (!), we decided to get some breakfast…i haven’t been to morning glory in a long, long time. but it’s just as good every time i go. this was our server…kind of a character, but super nice.

close-up of my southern frittata – incredible. full of sausage and okra and goodness knows what…

and look at – even a straight-up scrambled egg looks delicous. (the biscuits are killer)

unicorn diaries

i am in love with this blog – the unicorn diaries.

totally satisfies my sweet tooth…

Dentists Fort Lauderdale -Nov 06, 2009, 1:17AM
That's a very interesting blog. It reminds me of another blog, My Milk Toof. Though they are different in content, they have the same way of expressing their creative juices on their brains, which is very awesome.
