whilst in san francisco last weekend, after going to check out the frida kahlo exhibit at the MOMA there (a definite should see if the possibility is there - it leaves at the end of september) and grabbing a bite to eat in one of several, it seems, El Farolito Taquerias in The Mission, my pals and i went to the ocean.
(that was a messed up sentence. oops.)
1. frida kahlo @ sf moma
2. burritos @ el farolito taqueria
3. @ ocean
it was a beauty of a weekend. much fun was had. a great couple of hours were spent in the museum looking at paintings by and old photographs of frida kahlo (the exhibition itself is a whole 'nother post topic of its own. yeesh.) the evening before was spent playing all kinds of games ending at six in the morning. i got to ride on the back of a motorcycle - yippee! i went and saw the ocean.
i got some more valuable and precious time with friends i only see once a year and some i see a few times a year and another i see once every few days. these friendships mean the world to me, and after having only spent two weeks working with them in the desert, a short weekend relaxing was absolutely necessary. i love these people and to only see them sporadically and annually is not easy. a few extra days of great conversation and funny jokes, well, it helps make the rest of the year go by more quickly.
(although i must say we are all getting more and more fixated on the idea of getting together more often. if it's possible, why not?)
so i'm thankful. i'm thankful i was able to watch this beautiful sunset with some beautiful people.
that's where you would've found me then if you were looking last weekend.
