To them, baseball is a base of their lifestyle. a solid passion.
To me, the word "baseball" makes me think of something other than the sport. "A girl" i know, she has this game called "baseball". Whenever she farts, she calls "baseball". And everyone around her has to immediately shout out a base, "first base, second base or third base", whoever doesn't call a base gets a whiff of her fart. she cups it in her hand, airballs it, and basically bats it straight to their nose. okay, very unnecessary, but thought i'd share.

|STILL to be neat, still to be drest,|
|As you were going to a feast;|
|Still to be powdr’d, still perfumed:|
|Lady, it is to be presumed,|
|Though art’s hid causes are not found,||5|
|All is not sweet, all is not sound.|
|Give me a look, give me a face|
|That makes simplicity a grace;|
|Robes loosely flowing, hair as free:|
|Such sweet neglect more taketh me||10|
|Than all th’ adulteries of art;|
|They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.|

TAPESTRIES OF HOPE is an astounding story told through the eyes of filmmaker Michealene Cristini Risley. The film is a powerful documentary that exposes the horrors of the rape and sexual abuse of thousands of young girls in Zimbabwe by men who believe it will cure HIV/AIDS. The movie and its message of HOPE have become an example of the violence inflicted on women and children around the globe and the efforts and commitment to stop it.
Betty Makoni, the subject of the documentary is a tireless advocate for children through her organization, the Girl Child Network. She has been honored with numerous awards including The Ginetta Sagan Award, the Worlds Children’s prize and last year Top Ten CNN Heroes. Fearing for her family’s safety, she fled Zimbabwe but is working with a team of trained leaders at GCN.
The movie is being used as a tool by many non-profits to help raise awareness and push the United States Congress to pass and FUND the International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA).
“Tapestries of Hope” is premiering September 28th in theaters across the country for ONE night only. The film will be playing locally in the following areas:
2230 Shattuck Avenue
One Embarcadero Center, Promenade Level
SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94111
Palo Alto Aquarius Theatre
430 Emerson St
Palo Alto, CA 94301-1604
buy tickets at http://www.screenvision.com/s/showing/TapestriesOfHope/
Come support Betty’s work AND most importantly your showing up at a screening is sending a message to CONGRESS that we care about violence against women and children. Right now the legislation on I-VAWA is at risk, and your showing up could make a HUGE difference.
If you can’t come, spread the word AND sign the petition at: www.tapestriesofhope.com
Thank you!!!Here are a few designs i made for Tapestries of Hope and will be featured on t-shirts or products for the documentary:

Summer2010 is a special one to me. Growing up is bittersweet, as soon as you realize, summer does not exist for you anymore. The job, the bills, &maybe even the lucky kids one day. For me, I did all that i loved and needed for weeks and days, removing any obligations or worries in my way. Then, going down the list of neverending to-dos.
