Magic Carpet

It's been too long since I've practiced any yoga or taiji. After being hospitalized last August for [San Joaquin] Valley Fever (aka coccidioidomycosis), I began a "regime" of rising every morning at 5 am for yoga, and after dropping my son off at school I would go to the park across the street for an hour or so of taiji.

I just about had it ingrained as a habit, until the holidays and all the traveling, which disrupted my practice. And lately, I've been staying up too late to even think about getting up anywhere near 5 o'clock. Plus, this is the first time I've really been able to roll out the ol' yoga mat--my house has been a mess (again, I blame the holidays and travel--and a little boy who's better at a-wreckin' than a-fixin'). I took this picture to help motivate me towards renewing my practice.

*I posted this late because I'd forgotten I'd taken any pictures yesterday. I actually went to bed lamenting the thought that I'd missed a day for my diary.

San Joaquin Valley Fever, Yikes......we get quite a bit of this in Tucson, due to all the construction taking place....or so they say...it's mold spores that become airborne, no? I spent much of my childhood in Fresno, speaking of "The Valley"..I'm glad to learn that you're feeling better! Yoga is a wonderful tool for healing, indeed.
lramiro520 12 years ago
Wow, I learned something today. Being a science geek, I thought the wiki article on Valley Fever was very interesting, although I am sorry to hear that you fell ill to something so nasty. It's great that you're trying to get back into your yoga routine. My gym routine ALWAYS gets screwed up during holiday seasons or anytime I have to leave town for more than a weekend. Isn't it so awful. It takes such a long time to get back into a really good routine.

I hope you can get back into the yoga habit.

I've been thinking about taking a yoga class for a while. Just to stretch out some. My body is tight and not at all flexible.

ebilflindas 12 years ago
Thanks for the visit, , and for the Usual Suspect status!
With all the wind lately, , we've had lots of blue sky to admire.
So far, like here, I get a two-to-one response of people who have never heard of VF vs. those who have. Yeah, & , yoga is awesome, definitely a whole being workout.
And , yeah, it's one of those "once you have it, you have it" kind of things. The chance of recurrence isn't too terribly high, but it can come back. It's a matter of knocking it down and keeping it down.
I am doing better, but now everytime I get a little short of breath, I have a moment of, "Is it coming back?"
When I went into the hospital at the end of July, it was actually because I had been having chest pains for a couple days. I didn't go in sooner because I wanted to see if it would subside. Plus, it had been about 15 years since my last hospital visit, not to mention I hadn't had any medical insurance in all that time, either.

So, I finally took myself in to the Emergency room, and 12 hours later I find out that the pain was caused by pneumonia and a collapsed lung. In the middle of Summer!

I was kept over-night, and then another night, and then another night. Family and friends started wondering why I was being kept in the hospital for pneumonia. It turned out that as the pneumonia cleared up, other things were showing up on my x-rays. They were keeping me to figure out what was going on in there.

Had it not been for my mom, I probably would have been in there longer and/or misdiagnosed. You see, both she and her husband live in Bakersfield, CA, and both of them have had VF. And both of them had been misdiagnosed, which led to prolonged treatment.

So we asked the doctors if they could screen for VF, and sure enough there it was.

It is caused by a fungus/spore endemic to the southwestern US, and is also common in dogs. It's probably much worse for dogs since they can't really tell you what's bothering them. Being a desert fungus, those genetically built for more tropical climes are especially susceptible, i.e. people of African and Pacific Islander descent. Being (most recently) Filipino, I slipped right in there.

So there's the long-version of a long-story-told-short.
Thanks for reading. =)

What can I say, he's my favourite model.
That is, when he cooperates with the camera.
His face is so animated and expressive--

I love the way the golden light of the setting sun catches in his coppery hair.
Sometimes I can't wait for him to GROW UP ALREADY!
But most times I want to keep him just like this...

20th Jan is gorgeous!! Wow, Valley Fever is something I'd vaguely heard of but knew nothing about. Do you have any remaining symptoms now? Is the pneumonia related or entirely separate?

thank you, . I hope to have some asanas posted before too long!

and thank you, . Yeah, I still get some shortness of breath occasionally and fatigue in the middle of the day--just flat out "I gotta lay down for a sec--holy shit, what time is it?!"
the pneumonia was probably unrelated, but it was NOT unrelated to the collapsed lung. But they were all related in that if I'd never had the chest pains caused by the collapsed lung, I would've never gone into the hospital--then who knows how far up the mushrooms would've grown up my lungs!

LOL! Thanks !

Oh I'm feeling fine, Teresa. Some days are worse than others, but even then it's not so bad. Honestly, I know how good I've got it, and that there are so many out there having to live with so much worse, that I never really worried about myself--I was more worried about my son, and my mom, who came down from Bakersfield to take care of him for the three weeks I was in the hospital.

Ok, I admit, there was a moment of self-pity when a cute lesbian friend of mine came to visit, and she told me that she hooked up with a guy the night before. I thought, "What is going on that gets me in the hospital with a chest full of portabellas, when [cute lesbian friend] decides to get straight-curious?!?"

But then I got over it and went back to watching reruns of Project Runway and Workout. =p

But thank you for asking!

I remember hearing something on the radio this afternoon, something I wanted to tell you about--but that's about all I remember.

These peacock feathers came from my Tante Berti's farm in Petaluma, California (not too far from Bunaean, me thinks).

Nope, not too far--maybe a hunnerd and sixty miles (some people confuse Sonora with Sonoma. Sonora has no truck named after it, and is next to Yosemite. Sonoma is near Santa Rosa which in turn is next to Petaluma. So, I live close to Petaluma, but not as close as Silver Strand Beach is to Coronado Beach).

that's a great shot of your son... you're right, the sun caught in his hair and on his face is beautiful.... but I LOVE this peacock feather! Gets my seal of approval!
Congrats, this pic deserves the Pink Star!!!

BTW, thanks for sharing in detail the story about your illness.... must not have been fun! My fiancé too has one of those "yours for good" conditions... but not as serious I think. He has shingles and had his first very painful outbreak about 3 years ago. It's a virus that affects the optic and facial nerves. It causes his severe painful migraines and can also burst into sores on his face, which of course can be contagious. After his first outbreak he hasn't really suffered from it since, except the odd headache every now and then... but usually he's able to catch it in time and avoid getting the sores by bringing his stress levels down, as the triggering is very much related to stress.

I was wondering though... if this condition of yours affects so many people in those regions, can't they do something to eradicate the plant/spore that causes it?

Sorry about your illness, glad you're better.

Ok, now that I got that off my chest, let's try this again, this time with feeling...

Thank you, . I'm trying not to take these years for granted--I don't want us to end up like in that Harry Chapin song...

Oh, he's full of it, alright, !

Actually, , considering how "close" their closest neighbors are, you mightn't be that far at all!

Wow! I've got TWO Pink Stars now! Thanks, ! Oh, and I think your query would be better fielded by our respiratory therapist, .

No, , I haven't any French sangre in me...that I know of! Being Filipino, I think there's all kinds of sh!t mixed up in there! And actually, my Philippine ancestry goes back to my grandparents, but while my great-grandmothers were all Filipinas, my great-grandfathers were either from the US or Europe. They traveled to the Philippine Islands either for war or for business (hmmmm...) and liked it so much they stayed--and started breeding their way towards me! And my name, Emil Roy (which sounds assez Français, n'est-ce pas mes amis?), is actually an amalgam of my grandfathers, Emilio (from his father Emiliano) and Leroy. I call my aunt "Tante" Berti because she is actually German. She was married to one of my dad's brothers, and is now married to a Frenchman. Et voilà, elle est ma tante Berti! I called my dad's mother "Lola" and my mom's mother "Mamang", which I think is a Filipino tradition, like how I, being the first born, took my mom's maiden name as my middle name.

Thank you, . Now I need to start saving up to buy some cool toys like the ones you just got!

Thanks for reading, ! It is cool to see San Diego from another perspective. I live in the South Bay, but I absolutely adore Hillcrest/North-/South Park/UniHeights. In fact, I used to work at Urban Grind and Baja Bettys. Who knows, I may have made you a cappucino or served you a "Kick Ass" margarita at some time! (btw, is it true, did they really change Hamburger Mary's name to Moe's?)

As for the the Buddy Icons, first you need to be using Firefox. Then get yourself greasemonkey, which allows for browser customization and is also from Mozilla development. Finally, read doc18's post, GM Script: Flickr Buddy Icon Reply, and install the script. It's easier than it sounds, but I'd be happy to assist. Feel free to PM me. ( & are really good with this stuff, too.)

And thank you, . Actually, I took that shot in my driveway. I wanted to take advantage of the "golden hour", so I just threw the feathers down on a black poster board!

Indoor S'mores!!!


Those of you who know what s'mores are, don't ruin this for our international friends new to the delicacy! ;)

What you need:
Graham crackers
Hershey's milk chocolate bars
Microwave oven (I said shhhhh!)

Follow along with the photo set for the visuals.

Place a graham cracker square on a microwave-safe dish.
Place a square of chocolate on top of the cracker.
Place a marshmallow on top of the chocolate.
Place in microwave and heat on HIGH for about 15-20 seconds.
Remove from microwave and top it off with another graham cracker square.

Now, purists will have you believe that the only way to truly make s'mores is over a raging bonfire. But that's just because they didn't have microwaves when they went camping. Besides, here in San Diego, when the temperature dips below 50°F ;-) , who wants to go outside to build a fire just to toast a damn marshmallow?!

Oh, and the name s'mores? I think it's a contraction of the Mayan words for delicious dental decay and microwave. I could be wrong, though. You'll have to ask Mel Gibson.

Cookies and kisses with Grandma


So my mom came down from Taft--which is nicer than calling it Bakersfield's left nut. No, seriously, Bakersfield is bad enough, but Taft? Scary. Don't get me started. Anyway, so she's here, and while she can sometimes be a bit overbearing (and what Mom isn't?)--not just with me, but with my son, too (she sometimes seems to take on a motherly role since his mother isn't around)--but lately she's really been playing up the Grandma bit. And my son eats it up! He especially loves baking cookies with her...although I wonder how much of the dough he eats!
AliThinks 12 years ago

Yes, & , Nutella next time--but I do love me some Hershey's bars!

yeah, that tequila list is pretty daunting, eh ? But you don't have to do it all at once, y'know! What's funny is when they had some bouncy little girls come in to push a certain tequila, the "Corazòn Girls"--y'know, like the "Jäger Girls" at other bars--and the poor things weren't sure what to do with themselves!

Blue Steel...or is it Magnum?



For me, self-shooting = I didn't have anything else to give you.

I brought my camera along for a Costco adventure--I was hoping to get a shot of some a Free Sample Scavenger Frenzy--but it's not exactly easy to stop and take a picture when double-wide shopping carts (laden with five-gallon barrels of Yoshida's teriyaki sauce, 20 lbs. of chicken, a case of Gatorade, a 24-pack of assorted jumbo muffins, and a 72-roll package of toilet paper) are bearing down on you, threatening to roll up your Achilles tendons. It was hard enough trying to keep myself from doing the same to some of the idiot shoppers who just stop in the middle of the aisle, leave their carts to get something 20 feet away, and never even realize they were blocking traffic the whole time.

The best was the guy rolling a king-size bed around on a flat-bed dolly...WHILE DOING THE REST OF HIS SHOPPING!!!

Good thing Costco is the kind of place you go to stock up on stuff and not have to visit so often.

Someone might get hurt.

I find those kinda stores a little overwhelming. Once in a while I get talked into going, but usually exit empty handed. I learned my lesson the time I bought a case of pomegranates; I like them, but not enough to eat 24 of them before they go bad. Even with the ones I gave away, it was still too many.

S'mores! That's great...I haven't had those in soooo long. Mmmm, I think you may have instigated my next big craving!

It looks like your mother really enjoys being a grandma. And even if she can be a bit overbearing, I just think it's probably the motherly instinct kicking in.

Now Costcos. That place can be a lot of fun, but man does that place stress me out! We don't have one in the town that I live in now, but there are 3 wholesale stores that my parents like going to: Costco, BJ's and Sam's Club. I remember seeing a news report a few years ago about Costco's starting to sell caskets in some of their stores. Now THAT's really creepy. I'll have to try and find a news link for you :)

Pilates--yes, I've tried, not with an instructor, but with a video. Some of the maneuvers you're supposed to do as a beginner are really demanding! I've always taken pictures everyday; at least, everyday that I've ever had a camera. This practice, though, of keeping a daily photo diary and keeping up with others' is inspiring me to explore different styles and techniques--it's also making me itch for a dSLR! I taught myself basic photog. techniques on a featureless manual SLR, and a lot of what I learned has carried over to shooting with my little digital pocket camera, but I long for the truly manual control a SLR offers.
Oh, and I have another selfy coming up!

Hello to you, !

Ebil Flindas,
Dawn & Drew Minion #339


What was it I said yesterday?
For me, self-shooting = I didn't have anything else to give you.
Oh, yeah. Right.

Well, today I actually had a few photos I originally wanted to share, but then a package that I'd been awaiting for a few weeks arrived.

As described at the top of their homepage, Dawn Miceli and Drew Domkus are:
two ex gutter punks [who] fall in love, buy a retired farm in wisconsin and tell the world their dirty secrets… always profane, rarely profound.
Their podcast, The Dawn & Drew Show is one of the first podcasts I ever listened to, and is by far one of my favourites. Not simply for their show, but for who they are. They seem to be genuinely good people, and their listenership, which now spans the globe, has become quite a supportive community in and of itself. When one listener was mugged after seeing Dawn & Drew at a San Francisco meet-up, listeners chipped in to get him a new iPod to replace the one he'd been robbed of. And when I was sick last August, they called my hospital room! It was really cool--these two people who I'd listened to for the last year and a half called to check on me. It was like talking to old friends, except they didn't really know me. I'd emailed them a few times and left messages on their message line (which they play at the end of their shows), but otherwise, that was the first time we'd actually spoken to each other. Even so, like I said, it was like talking to old friends. Then, I got phone calls from across the country, not only from other listeners, but from Drew's brother, Omar, too! Omar had heard about me and thought he'd reach out and connect with me--we wound up talking for over an hour! He called me from New Mexico, I think, and the other D&D listeners called me from Dallas, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Ocean City, Maryland; and Lexington, KY (Ali, Allen, you two know this guy?)

Anyway, I love these two and their show, and I like to support them whenever I can. Like when they open membership into their Minion Army. In today's photo (which was actually taken by my son), I am modeling the latest Minion Army uniform.

Now that you've seen and read this, you're going to see and hear more about the Dawn & Drew show in your everyday life; so you might as well give in and give 'em a listen. Who knows, I may have turned you onto your next favourite thing!

"So listen up, bitches! Enjoy!" (That's from them, not me!)

Crossing the Coronado/San Diego Bay Bridge

View of Point Loma from the Coronado Bridge

Down in the lower-left, you can see the Hotel del Coronado, as featured in my photo from 20 Jan.

Thinking of LadyBadTiming...


Did you say more self-portraits, ? ;-D Yeah, you're right, I don't stick out of the ground like that!

Went for a much needed walk today. Wandered around some back trails of Balboa Park, and came across a cactus garden that I never knew was there. It was a fun discovery for me while listening to last weeks episode of This American Life

btw, , I just saw your photo on the Moo Me blog member map--que chula! ;-)

Careful how you stumble upon the vegitation ! Maybe mother earth was taking her work to heart ?? 01 FEB might be interesting in black and white...good find. I guess LBT will be posting all over this...

I like the drops on 30 JAN - found something like it one day during the Christmas break while visiting family.

Is it that art imitates life or art imitates nature imitating life imitating nature?

Love this, and the idea of a huge cactus garden.

oh you've got jokes now! I go away a couple days and you have giant phallus popping up, so to speak, in your stream.... see what happens when we get tired of self portraits...and by the way, you are quite a daredevil taking a picture from that bridge -- it requires all my attention to cross, i'd be in the bay looking for a shot.....i went and checked out the podcast a couple days ago, but need to spend some time with it when i can give it some attention....

have a great day today!!!!! can't wait to see what catches your eye.

This is behind the puppet theater on the mesa overlooking 163, right? That's the original desert garden in Balboa Park, I believe. What a find..primal!

Ok, does anyone else running Firefox have the problem of typing out a comment here, stopping to look up a link (in a different tab, of course), then coming back to continue with the comment that you haven't posted yet, only to have the browser skip back a page, which effectively deletes everything you've just written? And it never happens after just a sentence or two; it only happens to me after I've typed a paragraph or two! Anyone know what I'm talking about?

LOL...just saw your 'rain in So Cal" shot. EVERY time I go to So Cal it friggin rains. i've been to San Diego each of he last 2 march's and it's been COLD and raining both times. i think you just roll out stock footage of a sunny day to tease us East Coasters.

I read BellaGaia's post earlier, and it reminded me of this shot I took yesterday.

I want a little sugar
in my bowl
I want a little sweetness
down in my soul
I could stand some lovin'
Oh so bad
I feel so funny and I feel so sad

I want a little steam
on my clothes
Maybe I can fix things up
so they'll go
Whatsa matter [Baby]
Come on, save my soul
I need some sugar in my bowl
I ain't foolin'
I want some sugar in my bowl

Now, don't get me wrong. I love my singlehood and all the things I don't have to do--I gots plenty to do between me an' my boy.

But, damn, have I got a sweet-tooth, and like Nina said, I could use some sugar in my bowl.
I ain't foolin'.

I didn't do a dang thing today.
Well, I did build these guys for my boy--they're just advanced enough to frustrate him, and when that happens Lego goes flying everywhere! So just to be safe (and to get my own Lego fix) I like to put them together for him to demolish.

I used to do that for my kid too. He's 22 now and he and his wife are expecting their first child.

This is a very well composed, dynamic photo, by the way.

Cool picture! Are those the Bionicle Legos? My son LOVES Bionicle.

lramiro520 12 years ago
The one on the left looks super scary. Is he the good guy or the bad guy? (I'm guessing the bad guy because the one on the left is smiling!)

The Other Side Of The Fence
ebilflindas 12 years ago
So who do you play Legos with now, ? ;-)

Thank you, , for you lovely replies. Poem? Do you mean the prose-y bits I left you, or the lyrics above? The former--inspired by an effulgent muse; the latter--lyrics to a Nina Simone chanson. To be caught remains to be seen...

These new sets are very cool, !

Yes, , Legos have always been irresistable.

Actually, , they are not of the Bionicle series. They are from the Exo-Force series, which is Japanese manga inspired. They do seem to share some structural similarities with Bionicle(s), though.

The Exo-Force story, , is the classic man versus the rebellious machines that were originally built to make life easier. So yeah, the one on the left is the "bad" guy.

Super Bowl Sunday


I grew up here in San Diego, and I've always been a Charger fan, through and through. So this year was pretty disappointing; and as good as they are, given the way things go here, I don't have my hopes too high for next season. But I'm there for them win or lose.

That said, I wasn't too concerned about the game. I was more excited to see Prince perform, though I was trying to understand why he was chosen as the halftime act. It would've made sense if the game was played in Minnesota (Prince being from Minneapolis)--I mean, as relevant as Prince is to today's music scene, they might as well have gotten Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine back together for the show! Whatever, Prince rocked, and the game didn't suck too much. The party was fun, though, and that's what really matters.

Oh, so this photo was taken in the back patio--I didn't get any shots of the three televisions side-by-side in the same room. Sorry.
BellaGaia PRO 12 years ago
That's really pretty -- you got to my stream before i posted the most important thing about the game.... today's shot ;-D

i dig your transformery looking legos too.....

is prince in the hall of fame yet? is he due soon?
