Happy New Year, all!

We spent our eve at a friend’s house perched high on a hill in Oakland with a view of the bay. The moon was crazy big and red and it got bigger and bigger as it set behind San Francisco. Um, spectacular. But oh so quiet!! I’ve gotten used to Berlin-style NYEs, in which the town explodes for a non-stop hour after the clock chimes. In the relative silence, a few gunshots were fired and a Mariachi band played.

2012, we are excited about you.
