On the Turntable

Wearing Gloves Inside

Low of 40° tonight.
No Heat
in this 1920's unit of mine.
Given, I live in los angeles...
but still!
Drinking copious amounts of Tea
while running the Stove for some warmth
just ain't cuttin' it.
Oh, if only I could afford
Real Clothes?
Extra quilts & blankets?
Endless Candles?

Lone World

'I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.'
- Jack London

I have rather serious questions left unanswered.
Decisions that can not yet be made.

The word
could define this blog of mine.

All I can really say is,
Thank goodness for

Be Fancy Free

i’ll be showing a small selection of photographs at one of my favourite vintage shops in portland all through november and the opening reception is tomorrow evening, i would love it if you could come. here are some details: it will be at clawhammer and clothespin at 3611 se division st. tomorrow evening (fifth of november) from seven until eleven pm.  my friends tim emerson and rachel hays will be providing us with music and my friend made some delicious truffles for the occasion. nothing too fancy, but it should be a lovely evening. also, during the party they are offering a 25% off sale in the shop! for more information, click here or here.

It's time, to direct my mind on a purpose or plan.
to aim.
to redefine what it means to be serious about dreams.

It's crucial, for me to do this now.

Tonight's a Full Moon.
Tomorrow, a New.

Lets make this a turning point, Lu.

Chef de Cuisine

With the Holidays right around the corner
(can you believe it!?)
Cooking has been on the Brain.
Along with all things French.
Currently reading about that French Gent above,
Auguste Escoffier.

Ganhi's Office

I'm a Floor-Person.
My Lounging, Meals, Projects, Computing and Sleep
take place all at
Ground Level.
Even if I possessed a desk, chair, sofa, or anything comfortable
to raise one off the floor....

I'd still prefer Gandhi's setup above.

The Mystery Spot

The mystery spot is a place in california where the laws of physics and gravity do not apply. And that’s all I have to say about that.

My mind is dizzy by Distorted Perspective.
What is the True Horizon?

“I’m at war with the obvious.”

This evening a couple friends and I went to view the
Eggleston exhibition at LACMA.
It’s the kind of show that reminds one why;
why take pictures;
why get out of bed in the morning.

It was a much needed boost.
