xenophaedja “It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.” ― John Steinbeck

welbcnu A view toward the East Bay Hills from high atop San Bruno Mountain. These kids were counting the giant oceangoing tankers. They could see 6 though there are only 3 in my photo. Stunning views in every direction! #sanbruno #sanfranciscobay #eastbay #bestofbayarea #wildbayarea 3d

welbcnu This is just a tiny little slice of the gargantuan/Lilliputian views from the top of San Bruno Mountain. From Mt Tam on the left to Sutro Tower right of center. The full 360 at this scale is awesome in the literal sense of the word. #sanbruno #thesanfrancisco #sflove #alwayssf 6d

croberts02 Apologies in advance. I'm in Tahoe this weekend, so prepare to see a lot of pictures that look kind of like this over the next week or so.

welbcnu They promised us rain but though we've had skies full of gorgeous clouds ever since -- not a drop! It was perfect for walkers, hikers and plein air painters, though. #wetlands #saltflats #baylands #paloalto 1w

mclittle88 So how on earth can I bring a child into the world, knowing that such sorrow lies ahead, that it is such a large part of what it means to be human?
I'm not sure. That's my answer: I'm not sure.

I hate it when I go to the store and all they have is American cheese. Is it made for, by or from Americans? It's definitely not cheese though. If it's anything like American football, you're going to need padding, helmets and a lot of leaping scantily clad Pom-Pomesque females who insist that we pretend to not look where we're looking. That's why we have helmet laws. In Berlin, a man named Helmut Laws was caught stealing a goldfish in an abstract avant-garde art project. He'd used a teaspoon when he should have ridden his beautifully restored Vespa to make a quick escape. The cutlery had been easier to put in his pocket and the fish was not his only option. Where is the sense in any of this? You can add it up on an abacus, but it's difficult with those home made mittens on. Your mother will scold you and be deeply hurt if you don't try though. That's not the only benefit though. Red Bull and vodka makes even less sense, but at least you won't be asleep when you find your head in the toilet. Is that a fried egg?

I wanted to paint one of those large Muriels on a wall I'd found. She was pretty much against it even after I offered lunch at an all you can eat buffet

Color warning: I took it all out, but couldn't resist putting it back in.

there's nothing more intimate in life than simply being understood. And understanding someone else.
