I recently spent a weekend with a dear best friend of mine, Leah, who lives in the Bay Area. I needed some serious R&R and Miss Leah prepared a wonderful long weekend for me. It was full of gorgeous dew soaked breakfasts, centering massages, and fantastic entertainment.
After a night of not so late partying (bars close at 2am!) and spending the night in the Lower Haight at Leah’s brother’s place, we took a glorious morning drive through Haight Ashbury. The weather was AMAZING the whole time I was there.

My last night we went to a play at Berkeley Repertory Theater called The Composer is Dead, wittily written by Lemony Snicket with music composed by Nathaniel Stookey. The characters mostly comprised of gorgeous and haunting puppets made by Phantom Limb Company. The puppets had such an amazing aesthetic: I loved their clean lines and geometry with rich texture and ghoulish qualities. These particular puppets below made up the orchestra- it’s amazing how they were made to look like the instruments they play!
I had a fantastic time and came back to NYC really centered and focused. Since getting back, things have really started moving and shaking so its a good thing I came back ready to hit the ground running! ON YOUR MARK….
