Pittosporum undulatum

Snapped this excellent rainbow on my walk to work in Palo Alto this morning.  My Airbnb was also excellent… I would describe it as the “Garden Court of Airbnb’s”.  Hummus at Oren’s shop this afternoon… also excellent.

Meetings:  productive and necessary.

Morning run:  (first time running through Stanford in the rain), cut short because of the first meeting of the day. Didn’t make it up to the dish, but I did manage to shape the run like a map point icon. So that counts as fun.

Victorian box aka mock orange (Pittosporum undulatum)
That’s the tree responsible for the scent of Palm Drive on the Stanford campus.

“But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go – we’ll eat you up – we love you so!”

And Max said, “No!”

The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat and waved goodbye.”

Time for me to decamp to Portland.
