Iza was here the week before last… we had a great time. Alcatraz was interesting; neither of us had been. And it was the perfect sunny day for a ferry ride across the bay.
Alcatraz has a kind of stark beauty, actually. It's obvious there's been a lot of pain and suffering there. But the cells, facilities, furniture and objects have a the utilitarian, well-worn, honest quality.
Iza and Kaho were my booth bunnies at the Sandbox 1 year anniversary party. I set up a table with some of my design work on display, and they kept the customers coming.
Iza took us to Andalu at the end of her visit. We were sad to see her go.
