Giants win the pennant

Yesterday our own san francisco giants won the national league pennant. I'm not a fan of baseball but it was nice to see a home team win a big game. The second after wilson threw the last pitch, the streets on SF erupted. I could hear madness from my living room. I walked outside and down the street to 22nd and mission. People were estatic as they crowded street corners and rejoiced with passing traffic. I had a beer and then took a handful of photos. This one made me smile...

...this one made me curious. People were exploding with passion and camaraderie as they celebrated out on the streets. Firefighters sounded their sirens, everyone giving each other high-fives, giant fight songs being sung, beer slinging through the air and as I pull my camera to my eye I look up and see a lone person standing at their window and I begin to wonder what they are thinking and if they like baseball or if they too are lost in the fact that if these people were as passionate about important issues as they were baseball maybe the world wouldn't be so fucked

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

I went to a festival in a park and I sat in a circle. These are those who sat beside me.
