Took off at 6 AM for Berkeley today, meeting Kevin for breakfast at 9:30; I always come early to the Fertile Grounds coffee shop on Shattuck, with good latte and wi-fi. Catch up on news (read real hold-in-hand NYTimes).
Then this afternoon I’m shooting photos of a young woman who built her own $3000 tiny house in a friend’s backyard. Turns out there are a lot of women builders in our forthcoming tiny houses book.
Tonight I’m heading over the hills to the coast, to hang out with my friend Louie for a few days. I’ve got “my” little circular room in Louie’s shop, with wood stove and desk for writing. It looks out on grape vines and apple trees, with redwoods in the background. Gonna skate; there’s a half-mile downhill with v. few cars. I’ve recovered from operation and injury, good to be rolling again.
