June 16th, 2023. San Jose Bike Party's Monster Mash Ride. A good time was had by many.



Thursday Dec. 1st, 2022. Yesterday I decorated a holiday tree for the first time in years and years.


Monday Oct. 10th, 2022. Sad to report the USA's national debt is now above $31 Trillion. Some of us remember when it was a small fraction of that number.


April, 2022. Decided it was time to put myself out there. Resurrected my OKCupid profile. Learned that to respond to messages now you need to give them your cell phone. Don't have and don't want a cell phone. Just copied my profile here and stopped looking there. Click to see how I left it. Most of the content is six years old, but the biggest changes have been updated. Did most of the updates during the time at home alone because of COVID-19.

July 15th, 2022. Had a lot to do with this months bike party. Did the whole thing including test rides and route planning committee work. Worked out good for 600ish riders.

August 4th, 2022. I'm reading "The Girl's Guide to Off Grid Living", a memoir by Amanda Kovattana. Fascinating read about how being a Thai-American to begin with guided her into becoming a sustainability activist and something of a performance artist style writer. Lots of interesting perspectives on the way things are.

This website is an effort to share my search for happiness with other people. It is a large maze of pictures and words, and if you hunt around you are bound to find something interesting sooner or later. Click the pictures to see what is behind them, scroll when you feel like it, and maybe you will find an enjoyable echo of my bliss. Use the back button on the control panel when you find a dead end.

June 22nd, 2023: Found this quarter in my change when I got a burger and fries at In-N-Out earlier this evening. Edith Kanaka'ole was a spiritual leader for the Hawaiian culture's continuing environmental consciousness. According to the US Mint website the inscription "E ho mai ka 'ike" translates as "granting the wisdom," and is a reference to the intertwined role hula and chants play in this preservation.
