LUNCH WITH A SUPER STAR
OK, OK, I am a life long card carrying baby watcher. Cant help myself.Never could. This beautiful boy, my very good friend K. young man, however, was a magnet for all eyes at Pica's on Friday. A. is only 4 months old, weighs 16 lbs and slready has two teeth. I think those stats put him at the top of the charts but it is his charm, his love of all that he lays eyes on that makes him such a super star.

Aritist's and Writer's June meeting
Monday, June 13, 2011
Springtime in the Rockies = mid June. It is wet and perhaps perilously so with 700 ft of snow yet to fully run off and rain off and on everyday. Still, it is serene ( not many tourists yet ) and lush. The lupines above - I was told of this only today - indicate morels are likely nearby. Morel hunting is, at this time of year, equal to huckleberry hunting in the fall. It is a big deal and more often than not where they are is a well guarded secret. I am not adept at finding either but can order off a menu just fine.

Out of This World
A recent visit to the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park http://www.calacademy.org/ for the new Planetarium show. The Planetarium is different from any other i have seen with a definite 3 D theater aspect. The entirely digitalized 30 minute long show was impressive if somewhat overwhelming in its content.
Any presentation that intends to take viewers to the the fatherest reaches of space, however, is bound to be beyond the understanding of most of the general population. Still, it was an incredible experience to, via the spectacular nature of this show, be taken out of this world.
Please do click on the link to learn more about the museum. it is a truly an outstanding place ( that also serve excellent food, a San Francisco must!)
