are these not the most beautiful things you've seen all day ? they are growing in our new "back yard." did i mention that i am FINALLY moved into our new townhouse in emeryville ? i feel like i have a new lease on life. don't get me wrong, i love san francisco, but after 20 years there, i am ready for a more peaceful, calm, clean, and easy existence. and what's not to love ? we are 2 minutes away from the water where miss wilma frolics everyday, i can hop on my bike for some fresh morning air and exercise withOUT having to fight the city traffic, smells and danger, people are actually neighborly, the weather is exquisite, i am 5 minutes from my studio, and i can be back in the city in 10 minutes if there is no traffic.
people who think that emeryville is all about ikea are wrong. we are on the other side of the tracks where we can't even see it . . . . unless we want to . . . . and believe me, sometimes we do !
