Actually I got out of San Mateo as soon as I could for the woods of
Santa Cruz, but lived in Seattle for almost five years before moving
to NYC last August. I moved here for grad school; still not sure if
I can handle it, and I miss the Bay Area. Actually I'm visiting there
on Friday for my brother's graduation from Berkeley.
Good work, keep at it, and "see" you around.


: Anne, I'm right next door to San Mateo in Belmont. Small world. I
: grew up in LA but after college I moved up here to take advantage of
: the job market... that was in late '98. I keep saying that we've got
: to get out of here... housing prices, traffic and other woes are just
: not going to get any better... but we're still here. :) So what got
: you out of the Bay Area?
: And to Alissa, thank you for the encouragement, I'd love to share my
: work, but it's still *really* basic... I'm not sure that I have
: anything worth sharing yet. I've done maybe 10 or 12 designs total
: since I started working with henna last month. In fact, if it wasn't
: for Maureen's patient help, I'd probably still be scratching my head
: wondering why my stains were barely visible to the naked eye (stale
: henna was the problem). But, well, this is as good a time as any to
: see if this URL thingy works with my web provider. The link below (if
: it works) is to a quick design that I did on my sole yesterday. I
: wanted to see if designs on the sole got as dark as everyone said
: they did. This design was done with marimba henna powder from
: everydayhenna.com that I mixed and terped. This pic was taken about 3
: hours after the paste was removed, and the paste was on for less than
: 90 minutes because I grew tired of hopping around my apartment.
: (Don't laugh!)
: -P
: : Glad you found your way here. i guarantee that thanks to the
: skilled
: : and lovely folks here your hennaing abilities will skyrocket now
: that
: : you're here. Mine certainly did!
: : Where in the Bay Area are you? I grew up in San Mateo and went to
: : college at UCSC. I miss it, although Brooklyn is foggy this morning
: : and it makes me feel at home.
: : happy dark stains to you (BTW I recommend Ojai Body arts and maison
: : kenzi hennas)
