I spent Mother’s Day weekend in San Diego. San Diego is great if you like the sun, ten-lane freeways, driving everywhere and walking nowhere, shopping malls, snapback hats, and flip flops. Definitely things that I can only take in small doses, except for the snapback hat, which I prefer no dose. Saturday was too hot and bright to be taking photos, except that the benches had hearts carved into them. After the weekend I came back to a feverish Berkeley suffering from another heat wave. Hey, you know what this reminds me of? Sometimes, I wish that I was the weather/ You’d bring me up in conversation forever/ And when it rained, I’d be the talk of the day.
