oh sunny day.

I had a nice little Sunday morning. I met Jennifer at Mission Pie, which is a great new organic pie place that also has really good coffee and pastries and savory pies. Mission Pie is a product of Pie Ranch which is a center for education and social change. Read about it all here and go and support this yummy place on 25th right off of Mission street.

It was such a purty day yesterday and before I went off to APE I had a nice walk back to my house down some streets I don't frequent much. Check out this tree/memorial I saw on my walk. I sat there a while trying to figure out what it was all about, there were just photos attached to this mesh around a tree. It looked to me like a sort of memorial for people who passed away, but who knows what it is. I love the way the sun bleached these photos - it makes them feel sort of eerie and ancient.

And oh how I love all the cherry blossoms and poppies in bloom. One day I'm getting a big fat California poppy tattooed on me.

is that the tree memorial on alabama at 20th? i used to live right next door to it- if that's the same one. i remember the first photo put up. i think his name was gary...

i think it's a beautiful thing to remember the dead on something that is living.

how cool that you know this tree. i don't think i was on alabama and 20th though- near there, maybe alabama and 22nd? i can't remember, but i hope it's that same tree where you saw the first picture go up. and i agree it's a really beautiful thing.
