across forever

rarely does such a sweet little unassuming book that turned out to be so wonderful that i can't put it down. plucked impulsively from the biography shelf because it looked so out of place there, and enchanted instantly by the subtitle: a lovestory - one word. of course they went and changed that with the most recent edition, as you can see below, why must they do stuff like this? i would not have purchased the book below, and what a shame to have missed...

dolce vida

california pictures will come soon, but for now here is little zinn to say hi.

he's my prize from the santa monica pier. i love childhood fun: winning frog princes and photo booths and ferris wheels and funnel cakes for breakfast. i was a little shocked when the man we went to visit (business) lives right there and has never been to the pier! he joggs past it in the mornings! just doesn't seem possible... i could see down to it through the hotel window and i swear it called me day and night. it's sad to me that you would see that and not even be attracted enough to go once. we went about six times in two days (jack played along very nicely - he even insisted on winning zinn).
