Helios drove his chariot across the sky over the week end,which was particularly appropriate since it was the annual Greek festival, here in Oakland. Cheap vacation: a balmy terrace overlooking the city, greek bands bringing everybody to their feet, food stands with homemade fare,kids digging into their carton of loukoumades,Greek gods working things out, older men drinking retsina wine, cooling the parched throats.Imagine the sunset with Greek singing in the background and the smell of honey poured over the loukoumades...until next year...
Loved the aesthetics of the jewelry studio/store called Modern relics in san francisco, where a book release party took place. I also love the book featured called" San Francisco kitchens" published in japan, with a very different eye to details and artfulness.It feels snapshoty, and intimate, going for the uniqueness and funk rather than the upscale monotonty of brand designs.
