Piano recital with a baby on his lap. E has always gravitated toward babies whenever we’re in a group of families he will inevitably end up holding one. #lifewithan11yearold  (at Wilshire Corridor )

I’m ever so slightly obsessed with making the best coffee cake in the world, I’ve tried lately fancy ones with fillings and fussy toppings but I’m back to refining a basic crumb cake into something really spectacular. E is not hating my process. I already know he’s ruined forever, he was asking for appetizers and hors d’oeuvres instead of snacks from speaking age and his favorite restaurant is an old timey French place with cloth napkins and a fireplace … So if he only has a taste for the worlds best vegan coffee cake then so be it. #vegan #lifewithan11yearold  (at My Little Pink House)

I met “T” while feeding people on Skid Row today. He teetered between limited coherency and incomprehensible babble over an incident that had happened ….  

Sometimes this is really hard, I got in the car and cried … this should not even be a real thing - mentally ill people should not be in this situation! No one should be! We are better than this! 


“Most homeless individuals with severe psychiatric disorders are not being treated. Most of them have anosognosia and are not aware that they are sick, but legally we protect their right to remain sick. As one news reporter noted: “It’s as if we suddenly decided to respect the ‘right’ of Alzheimer’s patients to wander wherever they please. Sounds ridiculous, but that’s basically the situation with so many of the people we call ‘homeless.’” #skidrow #mybeautifulLA  (at The Midnight Mission)

Black Bean and Carrot Flautas. I made the carrot “beef” by grating carrots and onions, sauté in a pan with oil, cumin, sea salt, pepper, chile powder and garlic until tender crisp. Layer in a flour tortilla with puréed black beans, roll and bake or fry  … E took a bite of one before I could cook them :/ #vegan #lifewithan11yearold  (at My Little Pink House)

Fire Roasted Jalapeño Hummus. 🚨💣💥🔥this is more of a dare than anything else. I think I put too many chiles in the vitamix but it’s also yummy and just what I needed! #spicy #vegan #ilovespicy  (at My Little Pink House)

Golden beets, a slip of olive oil, some decent aged balsamic, a grind of pepper and flakey sea salt. Simple. Perfect. #vegan  (at My Little Pink House)

Art on art. I love this wall, it’s the schematic for a theremin on top and the bottom is the schematic to an AM/FM receiver … I need to paint the light switch plate. 

On the longer wall in this room I want to tackle this prime number line by Jason Davies. Each number intersects its multiples at the x axis with curved lines - it’s so pretty. Writing on the walls is fun. #schematics #artlife #iloveprimenumbers #favoritethings
