I enjoyed seeing the painting of Angela Davis on my most recent visit to the de Young Museum last summer. I still remember seeing her on the television news as a child, although I was then too young to understand the reasons behind her activism. Although some of these works of art are very difficult to look at and think […]
The longer I live here, the more convinced I am that the cats have become our new landlords.
The first time I explored downtown Point Arena was in September 2021. I recall that day I walked only a short way along the Shoreline Highway (AKA Highway 1) which makes up the town’s main street because the day was chilly and gray, and the cold wind was gusting right in my face as I headed down the hill.

Even though it wasn’t the prime season for elephant seal watching — that happens between December and […]
