Nice turkey burner today. Endless rocks and such a fun downhill! (The climb, not so much) 😜 #hummingbird #chumash #rockypeak #simivalley #mountainbiking #groupride #turkeyburner

Today in San Francisco tied last Saturday in Venice for the worse air quality I’ve ever seen... (and I’ve spent time in China and grew up in LA in the 80’s!) This photo was taken today, daytime. Cars needed headlights! Everyone was walking around with masks on. Official pollutant levels far exceeded 200 and kids were sent home early. Downright apocalyptic! #nofilter #smoke #sanfrancisco

Air has cleared up! Fires are finally calming down. Parents are finally back in their home. Thank goodness... it’s been touch and go. Now that the smoke is mostly gone, the weather has been so beautiful. It feels weird to celebrate when others weren’t so lucky. It also feels so strange how Mother Nature can smile down on us today as though nothing happened 🌊🌴☀️ #sunnyday #venicebeach #venicepier #gratitude

Because of the fire, we’ve been going through old photos with my folks and it’s been quite nostalgic, and sometimes funny. Here’s a photo of my dad tinkering with some laser system in our garage! There are so many boxes and boxes of photos. It’s so weird to think that the house I grew up in, with all of the decades of memorabilia and “treasures,” could go up in flames at any moment (regardless of the #woolseyfire, really). Fortunately it looks like the main hot spot near them has moved a bit north and off-course for the current wind direction for now, so I’m feeling hopeful it won’t happen this time, but it’s still too close for comfort because things can change so fast. Most important we’re all safe and it’s good to try to take a dispassionate view - it’s all just “stuff” after all! We still have friends, family, and memories. My hearts to those that haven’t been lucky, so many people have lost homes and I can’t even imagine what it’s like ❤️🙏 #nostalgia

Winds shifted suddenly around 11:30 this morning and air quality is terrible even on the coast. We can barely see the palm trees from the pier, and people are staring to walk around with dust masks and bandanas. (Maybe its time to dig into my burning man gear?) #smoke #wildfire #woolseyfire #venice #pacific

Went to the VIP preview of the Art at the Rendon’s latest installation. If they still have tickets, go! (This weekend only) It’s fun. Its an immersive performance featuring diverse vignettes of the hotel’s imagined history and inhabitants in each of its 22 rooms. It was an adventure. And the afterparty was an even bigger trip. (Too bad I stayed out so late my car got locked into the lot. I have to go retrieve it today...) 😕 #artattherendon @cartwheel_art

Orange maple leaves make me nostalgic for New England! 🍁🍃🍂☀️

The remnants of fall color still painted the coast in oranges and yellows last weekend in Boston.

I didn’t expect there to be any leaves left when I headed to Boston last week, but in fact we managed to catch some stunning foliage before the cold front came through. Although I’m happy to have year-round good weather LA, nothing beats Indian Summer in New England! This tree in particular just blew me away. #nofilter needed 😳🍁🍂

My rule for my morning walks is that I must turn airplane mode on for 30 minutes, and I’ve noticed it makes me more present and appreciate things in the moment. The flowers smell better, the little things stand out. I’ve walked by these lanterns many times before, but I never paid so much attention how they capture the sunlight until this morning. #morningwalk #mindfulness
