on kindness and tender moments

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

So, this one, unlike anything else that comes out of Puff’n’sip’s updates,  is supposed to be easy to follow – concise, direct, and intelligible.  And, as you all know, Puff’n’sip strives to turn badness to goodness and in that make the future possible and possibly bright.  And it’s not a by-product, but a results of the sincere intent. And it always pleases me to reflect on how true we stay the course. And with that –

Big thanks to the Prom Crawl Committee and all crawl participants for raising $200 last week in support of the Princess Project. Quote: “Just $25 sends a girl to prom!” So that’s eight pretty happy girls right here! Well done!

As for the business at hand, today’s, June 30, 2010 Puff’n’sip is on! We celebrate by showing up @

5:11 PM @ Chaya Brasserie, 132 Embarcadero (@ Howard)

and proceed @

7:07 PM to  Cigar Bar & Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

Lotsa love,

Big Red.

On proper ways of smelling flowers…

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

Sometimes you just don’t have time for that.  You know you should. You’ve been advised so. You even slow down and reach,  when you see an especially appealing little number. But you don’t stop. You have the perspective in front of you. The lineup of street lamps and traffic signs urges and  directs you – get there! Because that’s where you need to be – a single point where left and right becomes center, just there barely behind the horizon. You know if you press hard you’ll be there in no time. But it is round, and hence goes on forever. And that means no time for the smelling of  flowers. And there lies the comfort of the picnic tablecloth. Steady, conveniently alternating  parallels, with graspable dimensions, promise of fresh fruit and wine, and infinite proximity to flowers, birds, butterflies, and puffy clouds. And somewhere near horizon a faint trace of settling dust – yet another wagon, rushing off in search of perspective…    

 Today’s, June 2, 2010 Puff’n'sip will settle up around

5:27 PM @ Wine Merchant, Ferry Building

and strolling off by

7:13 PM  to  Cigar Bar & Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

Lots of love,

Big Red.
