"I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realizes an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past. "

In austin I found a mint vintage yashica electro 35 gsn rangefinder at uncommon objects on south congress. I'm so happy about that find..
while flying home i came across this passage reading dave eggers's the only meaning of the oil-wet water:
low-flying, quick moving clouds: I haven't long to live.
treetops, rounded and rough: That's probably true.
low-flying, quick moving clouds: I won't even make it to the sea. I can already see where I'll end.
treetops, rounded and rough: I don't know what to tell you.
low-flying, quick moving clouds: But the thing is, I really love moving like this, though I know I won't even make it.
treetops, rounded and rough: There are advantages to flight.
low-flying, quick moving clouds: But thought is its unfitting companion.
so fitting... isn't it? it was really wonderful watching the boys perform their latest in austin.

Hello there! Austin was perfect. Busying ourselves with s's performances and venturing out to see performances by forced entertainment and miguel gutierrez, it was actually a wonderfully relaxing trip.
Here is a list of a few favorite spots.. a list of must see, must eat places:
~ polvos .. a great spot for mexican food.
~ salt lick bbq .. the great salt lick.
~ woodland cafe .. i highly recommend their chocolate banana bread and chocolate cream pie. You can't really leave this place without having some pie. ;) Tyler said their pulled pork sandwich was the best he's ever had, s dived into their grilled salmon fish tacos without room for dessert and i feasted on their signature woodland salad... so good.
~ bouldin creek .. best vegetarian spot in town. I don't know how they do it.
~ jo's for migas, fresh scones, iced coffee, free wifi and a place you'll want to just sit and take in south congress for hours.
~ iron works .. i went for the ribs and i'm a vegetarian. if you don't have time to drive out to the salt lick, this is the next best place to stop for authentic texas bbq.
~ east austin .. best area of austin my opinion. so rich with character.
~ matt's garden .. an old college friend lives on holly st. in east austin and has the most incredible garden and chicken coup.
~ barton springs pool .. i made myself at home here and chatted it up with the locals. I hope the trees are saved!
~ spider house cafe .. relaxing garden patio night spot.
~ jackalope on 6th and trinity for salty lime tecate, catching up with an old friend.
~ trailer park eatery .. awesome tacos.
~ doc's .. fried pickles.. yum!
~ san jose hotel .. so gorgeous.
