vanishing ice

my trip to the city yesterday for a haircut meant salted caramel and a walk down pretty lexington street.

two great photographers are documenting the changes in the world of ice.

james balog who has documented the receding ice through time lapse and still photos, has a documentary coming out called chasing ice.

james also gave a TED talk.

and katrina shared this link to an emotional TED talk by national geographic photographer paul nicklen, who documents the animals who depend on the ice for their survival.

meanwhile neither obama nor romney addresses climate change in any meaningful way. romney's plans would in fact speed climate change—what with his ties to big oil and plans for increased drilling and his ties monsanto (see last post). money for corporations clearly comes before the environment for that guy.

37 yes!

michael pollan's ny times piece on why prop 37 is so important

and very much related to this, is an in depth look at mitt romney's deep monsanto ties: "mitt romney, monsanto man"

to learn more about the monsanto's evil ways, view the documentary the world according to monsanto.

i don't understand why a company that has consistently poisoned people and the earth for years and years (while profiting off of that destruction) is allowed to continue to exist and continue to pollute us.

and so as not to end on such a depressing and maddening note, here is a nice short video about gary hansen and his jersey ladies and rosa's blog post about decorated sheep.

i probably looked pretty funny walking home from the bus stop craning my head upward and behind me every few steps to look at the clouds passing, pink and yellow lit, over bits of clear blue and grey grey sky.

of course can't do the flickry cats w/o the flickry dogs:

pinky leon + pink

this apartment seems to call for pink, surprisingly. 

this weekend i (finally) made a box cushion for my bench (much more time consuming than i expected) and a couple of bright pillows. i think i'm back into sewing.

i really enjoyed the book doc by mary doria russell. such good characters—it was one of those books i couldn't wait to continue reading because i liked being around (so to speak) the characters. funny bits and moving bits and a well told tale about doc holliday and another time and place.

i go to the ferry building most days of the week, on my lunch break, usually for a blue bottle latte and a cookie and some people watching. the ferry building marketplace is a vibrant, bustling part of san francisco now—a destination for locals and tourists. read about the ferry building's slow re-start, almost 20 years ago now.
