Hike at Hidden Villa in the Los Altos Hills, shopping at Target, gluten free treats at Zest bakery in San Carlos, and stumbled across the Art & Wine Faire, where I fell in love with a couple paintings. Couldn’t help it, my first art purchase!
Checking out the new McMurtry Building for the Dept of Art and Art History!
Rainy and misty morning in Vancouver checking out the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.

Extension onto the lake, carved into a fallen tree trunk…
After an awesome lunch in Vancouver (Pinche Taco Shop), drove through the city and finally back across the border to Washington!
So nice to be in Seattle!! :D
Another very early morning, to drive up to Columbia Icefield, on the northern border of Banff National Park and southern border of Jasper National Park.
Driving in a giant bus up to the icefield!
(look how steep that road is!)

Love the color of this town.

Benefits to living in a building where people move out every quarter… really difficult not to be a hoarder and want it all!
Wandering Castro St in Mountain View with an open mind… walked into East West Bookshop and happened across this painting that spoke to me…
If you’re interested in Mantradevi’s painting or any others…
“…Some cry for fairness, there is no need to seek fairness. Life is fair. We are all born with an equal responsibility. The responsibility to become nothing more and nothing less than a truly decent human being. Then, and only then, can you be fair…”
Since they’ve recently been displaced from their dance studio in Roble Gym due to renovation, this group of Dance students, performed a set of dances using the entire campus as their stage!
This was the most fun I’ve had on campus in a long time. :)

construction of the McMurtry Building
(Art Department) in the background…
Man, trees are cool…
I sometimes forget that driving on-campus is pretty silly (compared to biking)… because you end up walking for miles to get into the middle of campus. The up-side is coming across cool and beautiful things that you wouldn’t have discovered along the bike paths. :)
This “garden” of wood carvings is such a gem on campus!
They finally took the fences down!
So great to see students incorporating it into their social space. :)
Check out this interactive LED sculpture by Charles Gadeken,
installed in front of Palo Alto’s City Hall!
I never imagined they’d install something like this here – so cool!
The lights can be controlled by anyone who connects to
the tree’s local wireless network!
Found painted on an electrical box in downtown Palo Alto. :)
A gift one of the architects sent to our office… almost too pretty to eat!
Closer up shot of Mark di Suvero’s Sieve of Eratosthenes… with Crothers in the background.
