One Day in Woodstock

Monday, August 14, 2017

Woodstock, New York: Fields of tall grass that smells sweet; signs that read "Show Compassion;" wild flowers blooming on the edge of the yard; acoustic guitar bellowing into the streets.  A feeling welled up inside me and I knew I needed to escape the city for a softer environment.  Woodstock is just that.  Woodstock is a round, welcoming woman, who ushers you into her arms.  There are definitely some characters there, but it's interesting and at ease.

My stomach released the moment I drove into the wide open vistas high up in the Catskill Mountains.  The peaks of these mountains ride out like waves, and when you're at the top, the hills rise up to join you.  Midsummer, the area is teeming with life - the town was bustling, but cleared out later in the day.  Fauna was at its peak.

Hiking Mount Tamalpais

Friday, July 7, 2017

On a sun filled morning, my best friend and I walked from Ross to San Anselmo for our routine breakfast at a small diner (sitting across from George Lucas, of course) before heading to Mount Tam to hike.  I'd never been to northern California before and was in awe of how green and lush the vegetation is.

Summertime and the Livin' is...Not as Easy as I'd Thought

I have felt noticeably depleted lately and realized the space where action ceases has been absent.  I have had little time to do nothing, or little time to do what I really want to do.

San Francisco

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.

Marin County, California

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.

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.
