homework in Hayward
October 23, 2012. Sketching solely in pencil is starting to grow on me. My son was sitting there doing his homework, and my wife was putting some stuff away in the kitchen. Oh, and I can't forget the dog, perched on a pillow there on the sofa. The Bay area is starting to feel a little cooler these days- nothing like Germany would feel, but you can still tell it's fall. I've been looking around at the hills in Castro Valley and longing for a day when I can go out and sketch them. Report cards are due in a few days, which means the first quarter is over. Hard to believe.
