  • Feast of San Gennaro 2015 (night 2)

    Outside my door is the Feast of San Gennaro.  Made it home in time tonight to catch some sunlight, so I headed out with my camera.  Can’t wait to eat some of these cannoli. So. Much. Cannoli.

  • WordCamp San Francisco 2014

  • First day of the Feast

    I walk down my street during the feast, thinking about eating zeppole at a different feast. Sweet, messy, absolutely worth it.  It’s kind of how I used to be. Socks with dog faces. I can’t even look to buy a pair. A specific pair.  A pair.  It’s kind of how it used to be.
