Bodysurfed at OB this afternoon. Even mediocre conditions are fun. Inset is a photo from Noah Tafolla & Steve Rowell’s book “OB in the 60’s” which I picked up at The Black this weekend. #OceanBeach #SanDiego
The most interesting and peculiar photos I take are when the video stays on inadvertently. Big waves and rip currents and outgoing waves and more rips. Very enjoyable session.
The accessibility ramp on the sand is back. In the water I met a surfer from Brazil by way of L.A.. A fine mellow session.
Went to OB this morning and rode waves with bodysurfers and bodyboarders and Jeff who was riding a random piece of square plywood he found the week before. He was shredding on it.
Me. July, 2008. San Francisco. BlogHer. Instead of attending the conference with my wife of the time I tooled around San Francisco. This is on my mind because I learned today that Heather “Dooce” died yesterday. Heather spoke at BlogHer’08 and was at the time in the whirlwind of being perhaps the most well-known blogger on the planet. She was surrounded by people every time I glimpsed her, then. Mental health is hard to maintain; harder still with the pressure of entertaining an audience. Deepest condolences to everyone rocked by the tragic news of her passing. And if you’re struggling: reach out, there’s help out there. RIP Heather.
Star Wars Droid montage. I don’t claim to understand how Star Wars got a holiday but I’m belatedly acknowledging May 4th. Thank the maker!
From an half-finished autobiographical comic. Cinco de Mayo is a deeply weird American holiday. Maybe I’ll finish this one.
On Easter morning we had 2 visitors. Mourning doves. One had laid 2 eggs in a disused flower pot which they turned into a nest. For the next 19 days they diligently incubated the eggs. Never more than 2 minutes for a shift change. On that day 19, they stopped coming around. This image is the light on my phone illuminating the lack of structure in the eggs. Kelly and I think the eggs were never fertilized.
