This was a chunk that fell off Shrek's back. Actually its some kind of fungus or lichen that was growing on a tree near Peter and Carrie's old house where Seconds on End used to rehearse. I've seen this kind before in the forest near Castle Rock. I wonder what is the common name?Thu, July 26, 2007 - 11:00 AM permalink - 1 comment
This was one of the exotic insects at the place near my home in SF, where Jae Hendrickson used to work. They took the bugs out to schools to let kids play with them. This one has quite a personality!Wed, July 11, 2007 - 8:26 AM permalink - 0 comments
I almost squished this young California Golden Newt while I was hiking the Skyline-to-the-Sea trail in Big Basin. I am glad I was watching my step!Wed, June 27, 2007 - 11:13 AM permalink - 0 comments
I am pretty sure that these are wild psilocybe cubensis mushrooms growing on horse poop. This was the first time I ever saw them alive and in the wild. I was delighted by their beauty, but I did not sample them. I found these off-trail in the foothills of Mount Montara.Sun, June 24, 2007 - 10:04 AM permalink - 2 comments

Went for a hike in Big Basin with Stacey and found this along the trail. It reminds me of a sheep dog.Tue, February 28, 2006 - 11:42 AM permalink - 0 comments

Peace, love, friendship, good vibes, fulfillment, ascension, laughing, humility, staring at the sky, running on the beach, being nice to strangers, sharing my hoops with kids, going up the mountain, eating sushi, fulfilling difficult promises, turning the other cheek, rockin with the band, remembering old friends long gone.
