I’m doing my final research project of the semester on an artifact in the Museum of Man’s collection. I chose this stuccoed cooking pot in the Kumeyaay exhibit (of course) and just found the actual pot’s description directly from the man who may have discovered it. Malcolm Rogers was with the Museum of Man for many years, so it’s not that much of a stretch, but his notes are unpublished and have been difficult for me to find. I certainly wasn’t expecting to stumble upon what I think is his personal account of the literal, actual, physical, pot I’m studying. Thats kinda neat. Thanks Cosmos 💫⚱️📚

To the girl who heard me having an anxiety attack in the bathroom at #sandiegomesacollege and offered to listen and give me a Benadryl to help with symptoms, thank you. Even though I didn’t take you up on your offers, your thoughtfulness and willingness to help a stranger was really moving.

So, my mom had a series of strokes this week, and somehow, managed to walk out of the hospital none the worse for wear. I’m feeling pretty fucking lucky to still have my desert roll dawg by my side. 💕🙏#hellablessed #momsarestrong

I’m pretty sure this is an opossum. I guess we’re lucky to have found this much in tact since their skulls never fuse. Kinda neat.💀🐀💗 #41of52 .

I’m looking forward to taking geology next semester. I have to find out what these green rocks are all about. The color is not on top of it like lichen, it *is* the rock. As of now they’re referred to as “snot rocks” by Josh and I, but hopefully I’ll have a better name for them by next summer 😊🤧

I had a lovely harvest holiday with Josh. We were extremely thankful to have been afforded the opportunity to explore sacred Kumeyaay lands that I’d been reading about. We spent most of our time admiring Kumeyaay customs and acknowledging the struggles of all Native Americans, then and now. The rest of the time we pulled cholla balls out of our legs, got cliffed-out by dry waterfalls, squeezed and scraped through boulders, and we ate pie, cuz pie is good. 🌵🙏 .

Fall, desert style.
Happy harvest day, everyone. #40of52
Josh found some styrofoam airplanes, behind a rock in the middle of the desert. #random
