For over 20 years I’ve been making a pilgrimage to San Francisco’s Carnival Celebration on Memorial Day weekend.
It’s been a few years since I have attended Dia de los Muertos altars at Garfield Park in San Francisco. The last time I went it felt a little Burning Man, enjoyable but less the event I thought it should be.
I stumbled upon the Yoga room at SFO (San Francisco International Airport) when I was on my way back from NY.
If you live in San Francisco or have visited the lower Haight or Duboce park you then you have seen these chairs and this post is nothing new. But if you live far away and haven’t seen them then you can enjoy the sights of these gold chairs from afar.
I had a little Bay Area staycation recently and took the opportunity to visit one of the places that has been on my to do list for many years: Angel Island. I highly recommend it.
More about the mural near to 19th and Valencia in the Mission District of San Francisco at the website of JuanaAlicia.com one of the artists, along with Susan Cervantes and Raul Martinez.
SFist posted a piece the other day suggesting that we need to move on from the pains that ails us regarding San Francisco’s massive sea of change in culture and real estate greed. Like a relationship that didn’t work out, we need to stop bemoaning our vanishing city and just get over it.
What to do with old record covers? Yes, it’s Souxsie and the Banshees. Click on image for larger view.
Seeing the San Francisco Mime Troupe every year is almost a pilgrimage for me.
I took many photos as I was excited to participate in Carnival this year— that is as a bystander.
By now it’s a bit past the first season of Looking on HBO, the new “gay” show. It has been renewed for season two which I am looking forward to, no pun intended.
