With regards to the inhumane treatment of the courageous, hopeful and vulnerable families at the border seeking a better life.
.

In addition to calling representatives and sending financial aid to the organizations helping at the border, we can also offer our time to local families already here struggling to acclimate. Here in the Bay there are quite a few groups that need volunteers to work with refugees and immigrants in varying capacities. The hurdle doesn’t end once you’re allowed into the country. Integration is a lengthy process, if not a lifetime for some. .
.

Volunteers are needed to teach English, tutor, connect people with resources, provide transportation, companionship, offer childcare while parents work often 2-3 low paying jobs, or to help out with activities, creative projects, etc. .
.

IG is such a vibrant community of incredibly gifted and inspiring people! Let’s show up locally in person when we can, even one on one, because that kind of connection can have an infinite impact. .

GEOMANCY: the art of placing or arranging buildings & sites auspiciously. .
.
The couple who created this place did a beautiful job showcasing the landscape by putting large pane-less windows in every room that look out onto a tangle of trees with sprawling ridges beyond. It’s tall with natural siding which allows it to blend so harmoniously with the site. The goal of feng shui is to make space optimally supportive; this is how it’s done.

My brother just sent me this photo of my father which I‘d never seen before. 1972. Post Vietnam service, 8 years before I was born. .

He and my mother had just traded city life in Boston for a quiet suburb where he’d then commute back into the city to attend art school at night while working full time.
.
Our own lives are so vivid and our relationships with parents often so clearly defined that it’s hard to truly understand who they were prior. Who they are as dynamic individuals navigating unknowns with grace and fear and hope. .

Maybe it’s being on the other side of the country or maybe it’s just age, but I’m increasingly committed to knowing them through the lens of intentional friendship void of default expectations and embedded patterns; to truly know them and their histories as I do my own. .

I’ve often heard that kind of relationship is really established once you have children of your own. But had we met each other back then, I’m confident we would have been great friends. Fortunately for us, we are now. .

I’ve always had a thing for exposed beam ceilings and this place reinforced it. Seeing the architectural lines of a structure is like seeing the seams of a garment; it gives you a deeper appreciation for how it’s made. .

Post meeting cruise over to Mount Diablo before going home to work all weekend. There’s something about looking out across 200 miles that helps reset your brain and put a clearer lens on things. If only I could go parasailing from here.....

At work but mentally wandering around this amazing installation by Jeppe Hein at one of my favorite places back home. Can’t wait to visit again next month!

World’s End is pristine old farmland with trails and rolling hills designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead; the dude who created the Emerald Necklace throughout Boston, Central Park, and Montreal’s Mount Royal.
.
It was later slated for a large residential development in 1890, and then in 1945 it was short-listed as the home for the United Nations’ headquarters. In 1967 it was also considered as the site for a nuclear power plant, but the local community made a massive effort to protect it and now it’s indefinitely preserved under to the dedication of The Trustees of the Reservation.
.
You can swim, see stunning sunsets over the Boston skyline, watch deer and wild turkey graze and hang out at the bird sanctuary. Here’s to protecting and conserving the precious places.

Curating art and arranging gallery walls is one of my favorite things to do in spaces, and I love how this collection turned out! While I almost never share images of clients’ homes, it was too adorable not to.

Despite some technological complications and complete lack of sleep, this week is off to a strong start. Between work, a website overhaul, prep for upcoming shows and a big photo shoot there won’t be a dull moment for sure.

A gorgeous day in the city with a healthy dose of wind....my favorite. I love it when work takes me into the beautiful corners of San Francisco. Still a tourist in my own town.

If I am an advocate for anything, it is to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. It’s a plus for everybody. — Anthony Bourdain
.
.
This week has brought two jarring public reminders of the indiscriminate suffering that goes on all around us....no one is alone in this. Depression, addiction & alienation are universal and we need to remove the stigma.
.
.
Suicide has impacted me multiple times as it has so many, but the suffering doesn’t end with a life. Generational trauma runs deep, and there’s so much work to be done.
.
It takes courage to fully show up, to be vulnerable, to ask the probing questions and to sit with the discomfort of suffering; in ourselves and in others. But let’s do it. For each other, so we can collectively heal.
