WHAT ARE THEIR NAMES?
Of all the people worth listening to, two stand out.
One, sadly, is no longer with us: Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
The other, David Crosby, I had the great pleasure of seeing tonight, solo.
And the experience was magical.

ONLY IN CALIFORNIA...
The very first sign to us from the universe after listening to Robert Moss on Kairomancy and Synchronicity.

PIGS EVERYWHERE THIS TRIP

Deeper down the rabbit hole at K & L Bistro, Sebastopol.

A great independent bookstore in Healdsburg with branches in Sonoma, Napa, and Marin Counties.
It was here I learned this morning that Motional Blur is scheduled to be published on October 4th.
The sales assistant ordered two copies from Ingram's (the distributor) on the spot.
SEEN AROUND HEALDSBURG
HAPPIER IN HEALDSBURG
Especially at Dry Creek Kitchen at the start of their pig festival...
(Not exactly an Islamic Blue Plate Special.)
PETALUMA POOL HALL
Petaluma: Some sweet pre-1906 architecture (unaffected by SF earthquake) and where the cruising scenes in American Graffiti were filmed.
Otherwise, little else, and definitely not an overnight, as anticipated.
THE VIEW FROM BAY BRIDGE
Oops, meant to take Richmond Bridge further north, but it's easy to miss the turn-off.
Even when we got to San Fran, Google Maps continued to beg us to turn around and go back to 880.
We refused, and rediscovered the joys of rush-hour traffic and the Golden Gate Bridge...

PETER BENBOW on MOTIONAL BLUR
I arrived early and sat in Pierre Lafond to meet a student today as I thought it was about time to finish up the last fifteen pages or so of your novella.
I regretted the selection of a public place.
I wanted to weep.
Your diminutive work is written upon the heart and mind.
Makes one want to believe in all the good speculations about the world: God, soul, beauty, kindness, meaning.
I now need to distance myself a bit so I can write a review that reflects the essence of your remarkable creative act.
Peter Benbow is an educator and Headmaster of Eureka School in Santa Barbara.
