Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

Cositas y Cuentitos

What a week, of new and renewed experiences...

Walking back from the university I stopped and picked up some produce at the local market. As I was walking a street kid asked me for cash. I don't usually give cash unless they are elders. I shook my head and said, 'sorry.' He wished me a good night, so I stopped and said, 'would you like some food? Its organic.' Immediately I thought what a silly thing to say. He said, "yes- even better," and with a smirk I handed him some fruit. "Blessed be, lady," he called after I had walked away.

Halfway to Burning Man 2008! Started the buzz and it seems we are heading back to the BRC Playa.

Heard from my good friend whose family relocated to Portland. She landed a university job merging her love of yoga and her graduate studies in psychology. She said that next year she wanted me to be her guest at a yoga intensive in Quintana Roo. I promised to make it up to visit with her and her almost one year old son before then.

Spring is in the air, and heard a new line from a guy as I walked up to university. "If I followed you home would you keep me?" blushed and did laugh and look but only because he was cute.

I mark time with solstices and equinoxes, and Spring is almost here. Decided to try my hand at the Japanese eggling I received over Christmas. Hopefully the petunias will bloom.

Celebrated with my grant colleagues funding over sixty fellows seventy thousand dollars for their social justice service learning projects. It has been such a good experience to come full circle setting up systems and reviewing proposals for the in-house grant. Just thirty thousand left to fund, love my job.

Met a friend for dinner and it was magical, the kind of place you always walk by and is never open. I told him I always thought it was some sort of santeria boutique. It was the perfect night for the secret little world of Radio Habana Social Club to open for us. We drank our goblet of Sangria and although we thought to share a plate they insisted on bringing us two and charging us only for one :)
