This is Eli

A blog about Eli. A blog about survival – and by that, I mean life!

My friends Leslie and Ryan stopped by OKC en route to Chicago. They’re moving there from California to be closer to family. Leslie is with child!

We stopped by the Oklahoma City National Memorial, the museum and memorial dedicated to the victims of the 1995 Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing. Then we stalked Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips frontman, visiting his (or is it his ex-wife’s?) Womb Gallery and OKC house. We also ate amazing burgers at S&B’s and ate cupcakes. Here is the photographic evidence:

First-timers to Oklahoma City should definitely check out the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

Just because, here are a few pieces of Leslie and Ryan’s New Year’s letter. They mailed it late, to the wrong address. It was sent back to them. Then they brought it to our front door.

“Here’s our inaugural holiday newsletter. A tradition that will live on for decades or fizzle out with laziness. Time will tell!”

“It only took us six years to finally take part in the Bay to Breakers spectacle, a running/inebriated walking festival in San Francisco. Ryan came close to finishing the 12K course, but lost his group and energy in Golden Gate Park. Leslie slept in and then went to the bar with friends. It was a hazy weekend.”

“In early summer, we’re expecting another adventure-seeking, live-music lovin’ rascal to join our team. Surprise! Nico the cat will be joined by a human sibling.”

Of course, it was signed peace & love.

Peace and love to you, Leslie and Ryan, and to all of our friends making their way in this big, wide exciting world.
