As much as a loathe the $6 toll, merging lanes, and traffic, I can’t help but feel a bit sad when I think about the fact that the Bay Bridge will eventually be disassembled and replaced by a modern marvel.  Yes, its design is  obsolete and poses a potential danger to those who cross it, but it’s the Bay Bridge!  The silver counter part to our Golden Gate!  We won’t forget you, oh trusty bridge.

The Color of Bone

The Color of Bone is a collection of ten poems by Ava Sayaka Rosen compiled into a beautiful handmade book.   The form of the book follows the concept of the work as a whole.  Long and narrow, the poems evoke the verticality of the human spinal chord woodcut  that adorns the front cover.  To further solidify this idea, the japanese stab binding offers yet another accent of spinal-like verticality.  And to top it off, the poems are amazing!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if women still wore hats like this?



A year ago today…

I was in Budapest, Hungary exploring a somewhat deserted, snowy city.  Having now returned from life abroad and moved back to my home city of San Francisco, I find myself itching to travel again… your typical post college need to have a purpose other than paying back student loans.  In my lack of travel brooding, I decided to revisit my life a year ago and see where I was… and this is it:  a huge Hungarian market place where I bought paprika, an amazing hat and ate authentic Paprikash.  Oh how I miss Europe.
