tin cider

I'm having these terrible fantasies about wearing vintage wool sweaters and eating apples in a Maryland barn. Maybe baking bread after and throwing flour all over my country husband's stiff denim jacket. And he has a thick beard. And likes beanies and drinking cider out of tin mugs. Save me from my north eastern wet dream.

Fuck yes I found my old tape player from elementary school and it works! I got it from my Babcia for my first communion in 1996. This was the greatest. The first song i've listened to after ten years out of commission was Zombie. Yes! So happy!

don't remember

i had this accidental ombre thing going on for half a year since i stopped coloring my hair but it had completely grown out. i attempted at ombre-ing it on purpose today and it doesn't look that bad. it's a bit too even and a bit too blonde but no major issues with it. half a bottle of kelly bundy.

548 Seabright Ave

Santa Cruz you came and you left. Now I'm all alone and I don't know how to feel anything but used.

Feeling like a fat ass is no fun. Feeling all alone is no fun. Feeling, or knowing, you don't have a job is no fun. But it's okay.

San Francisco New Deal Tour

I went on a bus tour yesterday with the organization LaborFest. It was a five tour of the New Deal WPA and PWA sites in San Francisco led by Gray Brechin and Harvey Smith. We travelled around the city on a little yellow school bus packed into seats meant for children. It was a great time! We went from Civic Center to Ocean Beach. They discussed the many lasting contributions the New Deal workers left on the city and the Bay Area. We stopped by the Rincon Annex Center where Gray and Harvey explained the history and importance of the murals found in the lobby and courtyard. These murals were the very last project of the WPA to be completed.

The photo above is from the Rincon Annex. It wraps around the whole lobby and here you can see the beginning, the individual, and the end, a collection of heads of state. The artist, Anton Refregier, believed the way to a perfect American society was moving from individual to collective action. What is very striking is the fact he used a Native American, and standing! Most American art depicts the Native Americans as either lying down, on their bellies, or sitting. All submissive positions. The Moorish detail in the ventilation is an interesting touch.

After the Rincon Annex we drove around and saw more New Deal sights until we arrived in Golden Gate Park and visited the SFP horse stables. This was my favorite part of the tour.

Concerning Heat

There are not enough words in the English language to express my feelings concerning HEAT.

You could begin with stale, then move on to oppressive, maybe muggy and always overpowering. It is suffocating, and sometimes brutal. Never helpful, often stifling.
It is blistering, boiling, tight, searing, roasting, baking. If it can happen in the oven in can happen under the sun. The heat abuses, it tramples, it smothers, and it tortures.

The English would say it's close, or very warm, but I would say it's heavy!
