So, now La Playa is one of the hottest streets in SF...or not.

  • Blocker: 1300 La Playa

    "Light Out SF" would have been great visually and environmentally if people actually knew about this thing BEFORE Saturday. Even the local TV didn't talk about it until this morning when it was too late to let people know.

    la playa

    The morning rain freshened up the air, and San Francisco sparkled in the warm afternoon sun once again.
    Being such a lovely day, I put on my workout clothes, took my iPod, then went out to the beach. Under the occasional mild weather, there are many people at the beach. Listening to Monty Python's "Always Look On the Bright Side of Life," I came across teenage girls practicing soccer. They romped playfully on the mushy ground even though they are all covered with the sand. I remember when I was in schools in Japan, I was one of them too; didn't care how it looks, but how I enjoy. The cheerful sight of those girls became an enviable sight. I felt like it has been so long since I forgot the joy. Keeping running on the beach, I came across a drown seagull which was, I guess, about to die. A dog was curiously sniffing her (I don't know, it seemed like a girl to me.) but she stayed still covered with water and sand. I kept running because I knew that there is nothing I can do except letting her follow nature. Then I saw a dead seagull being half burried in the sand. "You come from nothing, you go back to nothing, so you lose nothing," a phrase from the song came into my mind.

    A beach, where you come across "a life" , is my favourite place.

    still... love with Regina.

    Today was so-called Cultural Food Festival day at my school, and as a member of one of so-called environmental organizations on campus, I (had to) helped them out selling and introducing organic and vegan food. It was actually quite nice that I could get all those healthy, homemade Indian curry, salad, and even a piece of pumpkin pie with a cup of Chai for dessert for free but it was until when so-called political debate somehow started right next to our table on this Cultural Food Festival day.

    How wonderful (stupid) it is to arrange tables of Democrats and Republicans closely next to each other (and next to our table). First, one guy from Republican table came to Democrat's and started bashing about their posters which are basically bashing Republicans. The yell from the table bacame bigger and bigger, and finally overcame the loud hip hop music which breakdancers were dancing with. It is interesting to see people debate especially in the US where people have no difficulty presenting their ideas (sometimes without having any deep thoughts). The thing is, however, that people lose their temper easily and the whole debate can go out of control easily, and unfortunately yes, this was the case. Both Republicans and Democrats started yelling their points at the same time so that no one could understand what the hell they both were talking about, but somehow the so-called debate lasted about 30 minutes non-stop. From the next table where loving, eco-friendly food are lined up, my friends and I were just trying not to involve with their loving, exciting conversation (we felt fatal danger), but when the debate had finally calmed down, we decided to take an action; we offered GREEN tea for both of them.

    You know, "environment" doesn't only mean nature-human relationship, it also means human-human relationship, in other word, society. So I guess by offering green tea, we made some difference in our "environment".

    Being pregnant is easy. If you want, just keep it as it is in your belly, if you don't, just get rid of it with a pill or surgery. And, here you go, there is no problem bothers you anymore. It sounds terrible, I know, but it is true. Unfortunately, emotion, however, cannot be solved that easily. Once it starts growing, whether you want it or not, you stuck with the chaotic circulation of questions without having no light of hope for however long it will take to settle. There are no such magical pills or surgeries you can get rid of it at once.

    (Don't be disgusted by my metaphor, I am just being sarcastic about my life.)
