Selma was my muse in Austin.

While away, I was able to attend Jerome Bel's performance for contemporary dancer Cédric Andrieux inspired by his original autobigraphical performance for Veronique Doisneau.

Lazing in the heat of Austin enjoying some quality mexican at a great little food truck a bit off the beaten path. And those lovely cold brews at Frank.

Some tasty Austin food trucks:

El Naranjo. off Chavez. (Rainey, just south of Davis)
Izzoz Tacos on S. 1st
Torchey's Tacos on S. 1st (baja shrimp!)
Odd duck Farm to Trailer on the corner of S. Lamar and Lamar Square
G'Raj Mahal Cafe off Chavez (Red River Road)

We've been in Austin and don't want to leave. (crossing my fingers Chicago embraces spring by the time we get back next week). A bit of this and that from today:

a relaxing brunch in the city, cold brew at Frank, baja shrimp tacos at Torchy's truck on S. Lamar, a dip in the pool, Cedric Andrieux/Jérôme Bel at the Long Center, drinks with friends on the eastside, with a bit of work in between. good stuff.

Leila's shop, Shoreditch, London.

I walked from our flat in Dalston to meet a friend. Was a nice breakfast here (warning: eggs are drenched in oil!) but most of all I loved how the little man in the kitchen kept popping out to wipe the steamy windows. Such charm!

Been meaning to watch Whale Rider. I've heard such good things.
