breakfast bigger over here

with fall here, darker mornings and thoughts of winter stirring, i seem to be drawn to soft wintery whites (and greys) of late.

like these

a stanza from may swenson's green red brown and white:

Bit an apple on its red
side Smelled like snow
Between white halves broken open
brown winks slept in sockets green

how did i miss this?!

i often wander over to the contemporary jewish museum on my lunch break because i like the architecture and landscaped courtyard there. i can't believe i have walked past a swiss chocolatier, schoggi, and not noticed it right there next to the museum!

today was the perfect day (grey with impending rain) for a hot chocolate. i was actually looking for a new hot chocolate place today, and lo and behold!

i like how the chocolates match the buildings outside—sculpted shapes and similar colors.

i have never been that big on downtown sf, but working downtown, it is growing on me. i like hearing the different languages of the tourists and looking up at the windows scaling the sky (flashing clouds around like disco balls) it's crazy that buildings can be so tall. it really is.

should have posted yesterday's radical chocolate link today.
