Yes, every day is Earth Day, but a special recognition of our common mother was yesterday. I planted some basil and lettuce and went to Topanga Earth Day Festival.

My friend, Iris’s daughter, Miss Maya. In turn, she calls me Miss Auntie Amy. What did you do on Earth Day? Always, AMY

Next stop in Morocco was up the coast to Essaouira. This port town is known for its Festival Gnaoua music. Their souk (market) didn’t allow cars because the streets are too narrow, so that was lovely, along with many other things like the sound of seagulls, the loud crash of water on the fortress walls, the smells of fish market and spices, the windy, exposed town, and the laid back, ex-pat, music-loving, mix of people. One of my favorite pictures of the trip.Too much to write or show in a blog post. You gotta go. Always, AMY

Yesterday was one of those Sunday Fundays. I rode my cruiser over to the Farmer’s Market on Main street to get my favorite Tiger Chai and coconut water with coconut juiced pulp, and then headed over to Abbot Kinney in Venice for the street festival. The best way to go is via two wheels because it gets packed! It was great people watching and great stuff! Lots of the vendors are the same that exhibit at the Unique LA sample sale twice a year. amykathryn will be exhibiting at Unique LA in December! O, and I ran into Amy Tan from Amy Tangerine! Super fun to see Amy & JC styling in Venice! Always, AMY
