This morning I got up at 6:00 Am and drove the 60-some-odd miles to Downtown San Francisco to do one thing:
spend the morning with my girlfriend Natalie at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market.
I took home (organic, the whole lot!):
Sugar Snap Peas
Five varieties of Heirloom Tomatoes
Macaroons, French Style, from Miette
Ethically raised, free-range organic beef steaks (and I think I may work with the farm to get a hide and have it processed here in the Bay Area!!)
Seedless Flame Grapes
But really really I think the most beautiful living thing at the whole shebang was this woman:
She was standing waiting for someone, looking off into the distance with such grace and poise and I went over to her so nervously and told her she was so beautiful that I would love to take her picture.
Her 'yes' was a spring breeze, melodic and Chopin-lovely.
I will never, ever forget her
and for the life of me I will never be able to explain why.
She embodied something words fail to capture
so I will not try...
I will let her picture whisper those thousand words to you in 3/4 time.
