look what I found

28 May

NE Alberta and 14th PL

28 May

Stood in the rain
grinning like an idiot
like THE idiot
crying in that infamous
video clip.

I wondered if I should run the risk
of missing out by running inside to
grab the camera,
or be truly in the moment.

Five years before
I had no choice
as I had no camera
and had to settle on enjoying
it through the car window
as we crossed the Morrison St. Bridge out of town.

I ran back into the restaurant
reached into my backpack
to grab my camera phone
in an attempt to capture
what appeared to me as a divine sign of sorts,
saying that everything was okay
there was nothing to be afraid of
and that I was exactly where I needed to be.

Geeking out on Babies in the Northwest

21 May

I guess this is the kind of stuff you miss out on when you don’t have a Facebook account:

The Perfect hike
erased all the bad thoughts
beneath the sunshine
amidst the Doug Firs
the roar of the Umpqua below.
Thanked the heavens
said hullo to my old self.

We Went There: Goosebumps in Oakland

18 May

Right up there with the Randy Johnson perfect game (2004) and the A’s-Giants inter-league game (2006) as coolest sporting events I ever attended.
There was this:

and this at the very end:

A very special special special thing to be apart of. Best NBA fans in the league by far. If KD decides to defect to Golden State when his contract is up, I may be moving back to Oakland.

On to the next town

I would not be surprised if they gave Miami a run for its money in the Finals.
