So I haven’t been doing a very good job of keeping this blog going.. sorry! but as I was going through my iPhoto pictures, I thought about doing a photo log like I’ve seen other bloggers do. Here’s a little recap of what’s been happening this past month.

October 1: Stories of the Body retreat at Santa Sabina

writing and moving at Santa Sabina

October 4: swim practice at the Richmond Plunge

Oct 8: video shoot on the Golden Gate Bridge!

I was so excited to be chosen by the Diabetes Hands Foundation to represent healthy active diabetic people doing the Big Blue Test! They took video of us running on the Golden Gate Bridge. You can see the finished product here – SO awesome!

Oct 10: 3 generations together again!

the class was a Team in Training fundraiser. GO TEAM!

Oct 25: Occupy Oakland torn down across from my office building

Oct 27: Jet-setting Junior is at SFO, taking off for Peru & Costa RIca

Oct 28: Last chance workout: conquering open water fear at Lake Temescal with the awesome sports psychologist

Posterior tibialis tendonitis: trying to keep my cool while doing paperwork

That was October. A total whirlwind of workouts and busy daughters.

I thought about doing NaNoWriMo for about five minutes this year. I miss writing something awful. But.. it’s not my year for it. 2012! YES!


No, I’m not going to stop blogging here, but I got a really nifty new camera for Christmas, and in honor, decided to start a new photo blog. Please come and visit! I’ve been a fan of photo bloggers for a long time. My hands down favorite is Rion – her work is just breathtaking, like gorgeous little visual stories. I also really like Cloudscome’s SandyCove 365 and Orbit. If you’re an expert at the Canon Eos 40D, I’d appreciate any tips. I’m just learning. It’s cool.

The first photo was actually taken by my younger daughter, of our newest family member, little Omi. Here’s a taste of what’s to come.
