fort funston

me & dixie loo noodle, originally uploaded by sproutgirl74.

we went to fort funston this sunday. it was beautiful & perfect. i love the beach. i have a dream that i will one day live either one whole year or just one season entirely on the beach. that nothing will be required of me but to walk on that beach, observe the tides, take note of the sea life...the detritus...& to just be. i would like that very much.

taped to the side of my computer

next time
by mary oliver

next time what i'd do is look at
the earth before saying anything. i'd stop
just before going into a house
and be an emperor for a minute
and listen better to the wind
or to the air being still.

when anyone talked to me, whether
blame or praise or just passing time,
i'd watch the face, how the mouth
has to work, and see any strain, any
sign of what lifted the voice.

and for all, i'd know more -- the earth
bracing itself and soaring, the air
finding every leaf and feather over
forest and water, and for every person
the body glowing inside the clothes
like a light.

yoko ono

i love her.

check out her description of one of her songs on her new album:

“Waiting for the D train”…D stands for death, so the thing is you’re waiting for death in a way. And while you’re waiting for death, a lot of things go on in your life. Separations or pain or some beautiful joy, all this stuff happens. And then in the end, the song called “Higa Noboru,” which means “The Sun is Rising.” After the D Train, the sun is down. And then the sun is rising, and I’m saying “I’m still alive.” It’s going into the new era, a new age. We’re gonna go to a new age together. That’s what it means.

i like it. she is awesome.

oh the places sprout studio goodies do go...

just a quickie to let you know my sprout studio goodies have been added to a few new stores the last several weeks. i'm really excited to have some bits, bobs, & lovely things go to:

craftland they have had a holiday show for about 5 or 6 years now, which i got into again this year, however, they recently opened a brick & mortar & i'm really thrilled to have my sprout studio goods being pimped around providence town all year long too :)

renegade handmade store i've done the renegade craft fairs in many cities, for many years, and now, my little sprout studio peeps will be going off to chicago land in their brick & mortar store as well! yay!

also, a little store called "vault" has some of my goods now too - upstate ny, address to come soon!

as always, if you own a store, and are interested in wholesale, just give me a shout :)

happy weekend all!

crazy in love

antony's newest video: crazy in love love him.

what else i'm crazy in love with right now:

*that autumn is coming. traditionally, for different reasons on the east coast, but even though it's way different out here on the west coast, i love it now for the vibe it has out here too.

*sneaky bits of dark chocolate at my desk at work

*slowly getting back into flickr, i've neglected my stream over there for too long

*thinking about some more camping trips on the coast

*dance class

*sunday slow days (baking & cooking yummy eats for the week)

*alemany farmers market and my girls i go with

*possibilities; new ideas; fruition of such....

*& lastly, i'm crazy in love with my building, my building mates, dixie loo dog, and the mister.

how about you? what are you crazy in love with right now?

my rad building

i love my building & my neighbors. we have a great community. check out last night. they are uber cool & talented. as the night wore on, a saw came out, an accordian, a guitar, & a little spanish pipe. we camped out on sunday night down on the coast, we rolled up last night to this awesome street session. yep, dogpatch is the deal.

inspiration friday

a coupla great links & inspirations for you:

one -- the greenhorns, makes me want to go buy my farm & have a pony.
the greenhorns

two - recycled houses...for real? i want one. we recycle (or glean, as we like to call it) a lot, but this is just awesome. even better, they are affordable housing. brilliant.
recycled houses

& i went to the SFMOMA yesterday & YBCA - the richard avedon was better than i thought it was going to be. the ansel adams & georgia o'keeffe made me yawn. i love the sculpture garden up top though. YBCA did not do much for me either. very open & kinda vacant with their new show...ah well. it can't hit it everytime.

have a lovely long 3 day weekend. i have a farmers market to go to, some runs to go on, an oyster roast to attend, & some lounging to catch up on...
