Back in the Bay; India in November

I returned last week to my home of the past ten years, the San Francisco Bay Area, via train, which was wonderful, visiting amazing urban farmer - food activist friends in Oregon along the way. I'm now living in a captain's house on a (former) Naval base in Alameda, with beloved friends and Beauty of Water supporters. The Governor was holding a press conference where my ferry to the city launched this morning, which made life feel like a movie. Last weekend in Fairfax was as dreamy as ever, and Beauty of Water will be benefiting by connections with dear friend and colleague Carmen Mauk of Burners Without Borders with whom I had the pleasure of lunching today.

I will be heading back to Kerala, India in November, by way of England, in time for Beauty of Water artist Santhan Velayudhan's solo show in Kochi, followed by a group show in Trivandrum. We'll be collaborating on Beauty of Water for many months to come.
