Mothering Magazine - Fall 1981

How good is this cover. With the pending birth of our son just a few weeks away (maybe less), this cover is just so damn relevant. Michael got this for Hannah at a thrift store in Ventura - so epic! Good vibes, Classic Period. 1981 - Just off the best decade ever and about to turn up the eighties...

P.S. This is the same Mothering magazine that Hannah gets monthly to this day. Yes, the new issue is in our living room and although the information is probably great, the mag never looked as good as it did here in 1981.

More Color on Tuesday

Good Vibes for a Stressful Day!

Color on Kinney

Over the weekend everything was exaggerated...the weather was more beautiful, the surf was much bigger, the swell intervals longer, the shape was incredibly refined and the paddle felt twice as long. Overall, I felt older. And my first generation iphone took clearer images in more brilliant color.

One Last Sentiment, before I go...

It's funny, 'cause I actually feel the opposite. I think these crazy times have never been better for dreamers. And I don't intend to stop any time soon...

(thanks FFFFOUND! for always having an image to compliment my mood. you're always there for me...)

Peace Out Amsterdam

And just like that, I'm out. And it's raining none the less. A fitting send off...Later.

Degrees of Greens (stucco)

I have been coming and going from Amsterdam working with a client for the last nine months, and tomorrow is my last day here, so I am taking in all the elements of this little village as if I might never be back. So last night as I was walking through the Joordan at 8pm (the summer sun was still shining as if it was 5pm back in California), I was admiring the way the evening sunlight illuminated even the most boring of details...the corner of a poorly painted green building, the oily texture of the glassy canals in the evening light & the slanted facades of the Dutch architecture...

If you're in East Hampton August 2nd

I don't usually post invitations on here. Especially fashion related ones, but Adam's ceramic work blows my mind. Here's the image and the text on the email I was sent from Heath...

Stay up all night...

Things that inspired me last week in LA...

lannel, likes, lains, lands, lennon...lanks!

Hong Kong Fooey, Part Two I think

Was in HK a couple weeks back and noticed that they ship a few things out of this small little port town...
I love this place. Every time I am here, I feel like anything is possible. Especially after a morning swim...
I'm standing on the 76th floor of the W, Pool Deck looking up at this little building next door. Um, if you try to count how much higher this one goes you'll get dizzy.
Danger, Danger. It's 6am, It's 89 degrees and 100% Humidity. Thunder Storms. Pools Closed.


2 Thumbs Up...

Broken Fall

Bas Jan Ader

Dutch/Californian artist Bas Jan Ader was last seen in 1975 when he took off in what would have been the smallest sailboat ever to cross the Atlantic. He left behind a small oeuvre, often using gravity as a medium, which more than 30 years after his disappearance at sea is more influential than ever before.
