The Joys of Getting Out of the Office

So, as intimated here, I worked last Friday, but I did not go to work. I'm so happy when I remember that my work can consist of tootling around the Bay Area on a sunny day instead of sitting at a computer doing email. I had a great meeting with a curator at the Oakland Museum, visited artist Sonya Philip at her fantastic dress-filled studio, and sat down with a gallerist at the stunning new space of Ratio 3 Gallery. In between I ate a prawn burrito at Pancho Villa, stopped by the new Public Bike shop in the Mission, had a tea at my favorite cafe Stable, visited the huge new Heath Ceramics space in "Mission Creek" (as they're now calling it), bumped into two different pals on the street, smelled the heady-as-hell cherry blossoms, and walked down 24th Street which is one of my favorite streets in the city. Hooray!

  1. 1. Tootling is such a wonderfully onomatopoeic word 2. You couldn't have picked a better day weather-wise 3. It was so lovely meeting you

  2. Sonya, same goes for you (re #3), and thanks for the dress photo! the tootling post really wouldn't have been complete without it.
