we all know what matters:

it's just hard to get the reminders. so here's what i know matters:

puppy kisses.

the way avec presses her head against your shoulder when she needs you.

a warm place when it's raining.

ice cream sandwiches.

someone to hold your hand when you're freaking out.

someone to tell you she's going to be ok.

avec has pneumonia. we caught it in time.
she's a healthy strong dog, just needs a stay in the icu (fluids, antibiotics, rest).
she'll be back home with us monday.

thanks for every good piece of energy you guys sent our way.

rain, rain

little avec went into the hospital today. chest infection, awful cough, runny nose . . . all could have lead to pneumonia . . . pneumonia = terrifying bad.

she's on an overnight, liquid drip and passing out and all.

cross your fingers. it was a cold and wet day here.

not the least of which is good advice on how to lead your life:

(many thanks to the uber-cool bi-rite creamery,
with their flawless white mint chocolate chip ice cream cookie sandwiches.)

emergence (travel changes landis) -

i will say this for extended travel.

some reasons i will pine for china:

insane rooftop pool-time:

the four seasons, hong kong:

those crazy barbarella style floral displays:

the random discoveries, the new experiences, the mandarin meets english, the FUSION:

spending time with richard:

making new friends, ones you really adore:

the trains:

the free champagne everywhere you turn:

the old meeting the new:

kimmi and her poses:

the 798:

no newspapers, just manga:

the old and the new:

the lush tropical scenery:

that AMAZING sixties building in central:

gold hammers:

golden moments:

hong kong. period.

i may just have to go back:

settling in : portraits of domestic bliss

three days on the ground, everybody's back to normal . . .
