San Francisco

Monday, June 19, 2017



One morning when I was staying in Marin County, we walked to breakfast at Hilda's in San Anselmo, followed by a ferry ride to San Francisco.  The sky was open and clear, and a soft, humid breeze rode in from the bay.
  

I'd wanted to go to San Francisco for so long, had heard so much about it from Beat Generation writers and my friends who live there, and also had such a fabled image in my mind of that Golden Gate Bridge.  It did live up to its reputation.  Despite the influx of tech, there is a certain casual vibe that permeates the city and makes it comfortable.



















Marin County, California

Wednesday, May 31, 2017



I woke up in the morning to the soothing sound of running water, and went to sleep each night never having looked at a screen.  Marin was such a breath of fresh air - so reinvigorating before the intensity that is working at William Morris Endeavor.  The space this vacation provided gave me a renewed perspective on what is important.  Not climbing a ladder, whether it be career related or social, but being present in every moment so that I'm not rushing through life and through the only guaranteed time I have...fully sinking into what is around me.

















Berkeley

Monday, May 8, 2017



Cal Berkeley makes me want to go back to school.  A hill, wild with trees and long grass, rises up at the peak of the campus near the Rugby field.  It's well-balanced between untamed open land and the cityscape of Berkeley proper.  The layout of the campus and the way it's built into the land is evocative.  It makes you want to get to know it better...

Santa Cruz and Seabright Beach

Monday, April 24, 2017



The day after I flew into San Francisco, Emily, one of my best friends, and I drove down to Santa Cruz.  We left Marin in the morning after going out to breakfast in San Anselmo.  In Santa Cruz, we stayed on the beach in a room overlooking the ebbing tide, and walked along the water into Seabright for dinner.  We crossed over the railroad tracks that bridge the land on both sides of the water.

Friday Rituals: California

Friday, April 14, 2017



When I went to California this month for vacation, I stayed with one of my best friends, in a light filled room isolated on one end of her parents' house.  As her parents left for work, they turned on the fountain on the patio.  So every morning, I woke up to the soothing sound of trickling water.

One of my best friends is a coconut oil savant.  She is studying to become a Registered Dietician and is currently a candidate for a Masters in Clinical Nutrition at NYU.  In addition to being a Dietetic intern, Tory Stroker moonlights as my go-to health consultant...which means whenever I want to debunk a food trend or think I might have a food allergy...or just want her attention, I head to her.  Coconut oil is a favorite of mine, and Tory wrote an article analyzing its benefits (and the marketing overhype behind it).  Her wisdom is featured below.

Good Girls Revolt

Wednesday, March 15, 2017



Amazon is number one in my heart right now....even though they made the decision to cancel Good Girls Revolt, a decision both unpopular and seemingly unfounded. But, for shows like Mozart in the Jungle and the first season of Good Girls Revolt, I am an Amazon Prime Video fan. Their content is sophisticated and humorous.
