Four days ago while this girl screamed and struggled with her friends to stay alive, I sat on a beach lovingly holding my son while he played.  

My own child is a constant reminder of these families that are suffering and scared.  I’m not a big prayer, but recently I can’t help but pray for these mothers and these children.

Pudge at world’s edge…

Things that made me smile and go, “hey!”:
Rainbow cookie… With SPRINKLES! Go Fillmore Street Bakeshop

In somewhat related news: Go President Obama! An executive order clearly emphasizing that discrimination due to sexual orientation is equal to and just as illegal as discrimination due to sex, color and disability. 
Boehner and republicans that have gone off the deep end: your lawsuit is a waste of tax payer dollars and time. Please focus on immigration reform and the humanitarian crisis abroad. Also please hire a better Constitutional law team.

In war the people that have the weapons and have the power to just walk away are rarely the ones with anything to lose.

Walking from school after dropping off Pudge at school or to school when picking him up:
“Where’s your baby?”
“Did you know there is no baby?”
Weird/ concerned look

Weird that Putin put this up on his site less than an hour of the plane going down.  It’s one thing to say they discussed it but to say that he informed Obama of the crash? Maybe I’m reading too much into it.  This is so awful for all the passengers caught in the crossfire and their families.  Wars are never contained and the people that get hurt the most are the ones that aren’t fighting.  No man is an island…

Recently I went out for drinks and did the whole girl running in heels move. These heels here in fact. And I felt twenty again. And then my knees buckled and started to ache and I kinda half limped to the bar. 
Also doesn’t it look like my leg is squashing my teeny tiny foot?

Chinese Yuppie Hippie Earth Mama- there are a lot of conflicting facets of who we are, what we believe in and where we come from. On the one hand I’m really really into bargains (Chinese) but I like nice things (yuppie and a little Chinese). I care very much about what happens in the world and after reading an article about why buying fair trade chocolate is so important ( earth mama/hippie) I realized that it’s not just enough to stay away from chocolate products that have palm oil. 
In any case here is my shopping trip to Bi-Rite today: nectarines, wild salmon, grass fed tri tip, organic Roma tomatoes, carrots, golden beets and spring mix, Worcester sauce and a fair trade TCHO chocolate bar. The bar was 15% of my total which includes dinner for two days.
We will be rationing this bar for Pudge over the next week! 
Imagine I would have gotten out of the store for $38 with the most beautiful luminescent salmon steak and nice solid cut of tri tip plus colorful fresh crisp produce. That’s a deal.
The chocolate added $7.
Just goes to show that the cost of chocolate is getting higher and to purchase quality and responsibly is expensive.

Kulture Kid: Rothko’s signature paintings were expressions of pure human emotions. Pudge says that this painting makes him feel happy because it is black.
