Friends, Meet My Folks

Hey y’all!  Hope your week’s going beautifully.  Sorry for my absence lately, but I’ve been busy with some very special visitors to Barcelona…my Mama and Pops!

Ain’t they sweet?

We’ve really been on the go — today, for instance, we’re taking the train to visit the Vipassana center; checking out an exhibit at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (“The Jazz Century,” it’s called — and it looks fabulous); rest; dinner; wandering El Born; and then a bit of classical Spanish guitar. With a pace like that, I may not have time to post much of anything these next few days, but I’ll make it up to you some way. ;) Meanwhile, enjoy the week, wherever in the world you are.

    What a lovely set of photos! Please say hello to your parents for me!

    Well I just realized that this exists. Great! Hey Katie, I’m looking forward to checking this out. Your intro was a masterful example of skating right around the edges of cliches that make my mind shut down….but not falling in.

    Also: Ms. Lori Cohen! Would you send me an e-mail so I can have yours? Are you still in SF?

    To be at least a little on-topic: your dad is a serious and intimidating blackjack dealer.

    Yes, Ryan, “The Fish,” I’m lori.c.cohen@gmail. Sorry, Katie, for co-opting your blog for my personal communiqués. :)

    Don’t apologize — this is a happiness blog, for pete’s sake. And guess how I feel to see that you and The Fish have found each other? Uh huh. Yeah. ;)

    My parents say hi. My mom lights up whenever I mention your name.

    Ryan, it’s great to hear from you, as always, in whatever medium. A tiny part of me feels nervous that you’ll judge this site as insufficiently political (being the “serious and intimidating” organizer you are, hehe). But, well, that’s up to you. In any case, I would love to get some face time with you (and Cohen?!) when I’m back in the Bay Area this fall…so please pencil me into your agenda for Sometime In Autumn!

    You’re both penciled in for some face time. Just give me a time and a place.

  7. Ryan "The Fish" Sturges August 21, 2009 / 10:09 am

    Time and a place and a face, let’s do it.

  8. Ryan "The Fish" Sturges August 21, 2009 / 10:11 am

    Also this site is awesome, and much better than my serious and intimidating one which doesn’t exist. Happiness is also political in some way that only Aaron could explain. My friends however do write a political blog, which looks like this:

    Hi Katie,

    Nice picts of your folks. I just got back from hangin’ out in the local park with your Dad and Boomer. What a great visit they had with you in such a world class city! Enjoy the fun. See you soon.

    So glad everyone’s enjoying the photos! The subjects made it easy work.

    Aunt Linda, Jon, Noa, I’m so excited to see you soon! Imagine fusing the smiles of my parents together and you’ll get a good mental preview. ;)

    No wonder your mom and dad haven’t called me back! Okay, I’ll forgive them. I’m sooo happy to see them having fun.
