october in july
Cold and overcast again today, invigorating. My nephew and I had one more dinner last night at a great Thai restaurant just a short walk away (I love cities!). We've been exchanging family stories and filling in gaps from the years when we were out of touch. He's leaving tomorrow to deal with his brother's apartment and other connected things. His parents are unable to travel here and I'm leaving soon, so he will do it alone. I look forward to the next trip when I can spend more time in his cosy coffee shop, Bread and Butter Cafe. Check it out if you're ever in the area. It's a good place to work, eat excellent sandwiches, soups, coffee and pastries. Good neighborhood walking too, with interesting architecture, and a short distance to Golden Gate Park where it's always lush and lively.
the world is full of magic things,
patiently waiting for our senses
to grow sharper
