Art & Life


April 25, 2017


Tuesday. Lights out by ten. I think. Not all that late, anyway, but still awoke at five-thirty to then while away my time (albeit half asleep) until five minutes to six when the KPFA news came on and started the usual up and out the door routine on what looks to be a clear morning. So I'm guessing we're good.

The plain waffle, sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast to then walk home under what was now a bright sun. Overcast as I write, but a decent walk back to the apartment, hearing some activity inside the building that fronts the apartment house project, but nothing other than an open passageway visible.

I did process a few more photographs from the March For Science yesterday and incorporated them into the web site, the one above and the one behind the journal title among them. They're better than some I'd originally chosen, although I kept them as well.

Later. A bus to the Broadway ATM and then another bus right back to the apartment. Experience again some of yesterday's vision issues that again straightened themselves out after an hour. Maybe more.

I went by the apartment/condominium construction site fronting on my lane to see if there was any activity there and found two workers loading a bin as they'd been doing earlier these last couple of weeks on the other side along Grand. So stuff is continuing to happen.

Which means in the scheme of things?

Something to follow over this coming year.

Pretty exciting stuff.

There's only so much excitement wanted after a certain point in this life and we've reached that point.

Later still. They're saying a small chance of rain tomorrow, although more likely to keep to the north and very little rain even up there and then - ta! da! - quite possibly no more rain until fall. Clear skies and rising well into the seventies starting on Thursday through the entire following. We'd raise a glass to the weather if it weren't for the fact we don't drink anymore. Other than water. And coffee.

Evening. Watched Democracy Now!, futzed around a bit on the guitar, checked out Charlie Rose and then American Experience that started at eight before quitting and going to bed. To check out the tablet again unless the head decides it's absorbed enough diode light for a night.

The photo up top was taken Saturday at the San Francisco March For Science with a Nikon D4s mounted with a 24-70mm f 2.8 G Nikkor lens.
