Daring mathematician, fashion conscious tycoon, looking to explore all the visual expressions of the Bay Area. How do express your joy? Your beauty? Is it in a head flung back, hair streaming,ย in unabashed amusement? Or is it the tip of your hat, and swagger of a leather clad toe, as you make me that yummy latte? If I could tell you everything about me in a glance, I would…for now let’s just start with moment, and my desire to find the sacred in the profane. Can I find a beautiful moment, every day, and capture it to share, for the next 365 days? This is my challenge, to myself this year….because what else am I doing with myself in Marin? How dare I keep such delightful treasures and awe inspiring glimpses of perfection from being recorded.

  1. Hi Rachel, I got your name and number (if this is the same Rachel Staudt) from Margaret Welty here in the Placerville area. I am starting up a life drawing group in Pville 2x a month in the evenings and am looking for models. I heard you were very good. If this is the same Rachel, are you still posing? If you are not posing, can you recommend anyone that would be willing to come to the foothills? Thank you kindly! Mary Rich

  2. I am LOVING this!!!!! Thank you for sharing all of your glorious creativity. Can’t wait to see what the next day will bring. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Rachael, such a pleasure to meet you at the Natalie Murchant/Seattle Symphony show this evening! What a show huh?! Looking forward to spending more time here on your blog. What an inspiration!!

  4. Hey Rachael,
    I’ve noticed you post a lot of great content about people expressing themselves around the Bay Area. It’s great to see people so interested in their surroundings, not just the landscape but the people who populate it. Iโ€™m working for a new start-up called HeyLets and weโ€™re trying to get people excited about doing what you do. We want our users to rediscover their city through mini-recommendations from people with similar interests and hopefully pay it forward. I was wondering, would you be interested in sharing some of your positive experiences in your community with us? We’d love to hear what you have to say and help you promote your blog.
    Drop me a line if youโ€™re interested in more info: adam@heylets.com
    Thanks for your time and keep up the good work!

  5. Hey Rachael, we met the other day on campus. Great blog! You have inspired me to actually start the one I have been trying to for about 3 years. Thank you for that! Hope all is well.

  6. Hi! First of all I love the whole idea of this blog. I keep a journal with a similar theme (one beautiful thing a day). A few days ago you photographed me and my boyfriend in downtown San Francisco and I was wondering if I could get the pictures that you took.
