Travels

Thank you nice people for your nice words. I have been happily distracting myself with trips and travels and 1,054 miles freshly put on the wagon.


I've been traveling home and then home again to my actual home, then to my nearby home away from home, Connecticut. Home to the land of my grandpa and fiery leaves and fiery fireplaces.


My sister is still on leave from work because of her accident and she has another 2 months to go. We've been running around together a lot this fall since we haven't been in the same place for longer than a week in years. She makes a good travel buddy and patiently puts up with my constant camera clicking.


We foraged and frolicked and lost each other in the woods not 15 minutes after I took this photo. It was a whole hour till we found each other. Turns out, I wandered off in pursuit of serious acorn collecting and she was peeing in the bushes. If that doesn't say what kind of girls we are then I don't know what does.

She's been a wellspring of inspiration and positive energy since, professionally speaking, shit hit the fan last month. She knows me better than anyone else and is especially good at talking me down from ledges. She has 26 years experience and after this week, she's a pro.

  4. Talk about a blessing in disguise! Shit hits the fan: you get to hang out with your sister. Siblings do, indeed, rock. Enjoy!

  5. Acorn-collecting and peeing-in-the-woodsing are the PERFECT ways to back away from the ledge and get some much-needed sister perspective. Glad you're in such good company. Sending you big acorny hugs (where I live right now the acorns are way tiny and the oak leaves and pointy like holly, so I'm just going to throw this out there: I'm requesting An Apple A Day picture of good old fashioned New England acorns).

  13. Hay!!! what's this... telling the whole world I like to pee in the woods?!?! Well, I guess I did just give you kudos for always being honest, sigh... it's true.

    Boy, am I glad that you were not eaten by a bear, or swept down stream or any of the other tragedies I imagined while we were lost from each other.

    I love my AmzieBethie... you inspire me too

  18. This is what Bear and I call "stolen time" - sometimes it happens because of accidents, or other occurrences which we label "bad", but out of that comes time spent together that you wouldn't have had otherwise.

    Enjoy every stolen minute!

  21. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
