when i read beatles, forever this morning, i couldn't help but think of my own walk on abbey road. this was shot two of the day and eventhough its from the wrong angle, it turned out a lot better than the one that was at the wrong crosswalk. awkward to say the least, but thanks to the kind london chap who pointed us in the right direction.
"it's been a great year for me and a great year for the beatles and hearing that the ABBEY ROAD crossing is to be preserved is the icing on the cake." - sir paul mccartney

my friend sam just moved into the city in san francisco, isn't her view amazing? i can't wait to go visit her in a few weeks. i heart the city by the bay.
my brother went boar hunting today. i'm not exactly sure why, but i don't ask questions. the thought of him with a gun kind of scares me, triggering flash backs from my childhood and being chased with bb guns. he's almost thirty, yet he looks just like a little kid in the picture, young at heart.
our second christmas tree of the season. long story, don't ask!

go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
as far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexatious to the spirit.
if you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
but let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
especially, do not feign affection.
neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
but do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
you are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
and whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
therefore be at peace with god,
whatever you conceive him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
with all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
strive to be happy.
mother nature is going through menopause and southern california is feeling the wrath of her hormones. i'm not necessarily complaining, but it's just not as fun decorating the house for christmas with the air conditioner on.

i downloaded this song the other night but only because i was being demanded by my friend brooke. who probably has this song blasting as we speak, while starring at a picture of florence, whom she is creepily obsessed with. and although i hate to admit it, the song is damn catchy and has been on repeat ever since.
