Safe passage

grace and beauty

Farewell to my beautiful, brilliant, and courageous mom.

Two years ago everything changed

There's an odd kind of relief in missing the two-year anniversary of the Woolsey Fire, which reached Malibu on November 9. Our state has had hundreds of wildfires since then, each seemingly worse than the ones before, human and wildlife communities devastated, living with the consequences for decades.

Even more autumn colors

Signs of Saturday: What a day

It rained:

AND it rained today!

Then this happened:


And a dance party got started in Bluffs Park:

tbt: The fog rolled in

We'll get occasional shreds of fog these days, and if we're lucky, smallish swathes, but the kind of fog that covers the ocean and muffles sound, grounds the birds and drifts high up into the hills, that doesn't really happen any more.

It's Puppy Wednesday!

You know who has no idea that the electoral college is an antiquated, divisive, and fundamentally anti-democratic institution? Sleepy puppies! (A reminder that videos on the site are taking a long, long time to load.)
