UPDATE:Pregnant Bikini Contest

The gray coastal clouds were left to droop as I entered the dark, but animated, chaos of the Pacific Beach Bar and Grill. Waitresses swarmed like nibbling fish and swollen security guards wore shades. Red faced marines and washboard tone bellies pounded the bar as drinks flowed and fried appetizers crackled. I awkwardly inquired about […]

Village Sweet Village

Your home extends beyond the walls you sleep within. It meanders down the streets of your neighborhood and sits in your favorite cafe. It shuffles its toes along the moist shore and hikes through dusty Eucalyptus groves. It sloshes through marshes and hiccups in pubs. It cools you during the summer and protects you during […]

Part of the 4%?

A path traveled offers multiple opportunities for involvement and interaction. The sky changes colors as the sun yawns and flowers bloom like a thickening canvas. How often do you notice your surroundings and how much thought do you invest in your findings? Some rarely observe the everyday sites other than directional signs, stoplights and other […]
