Great to hear about this young man.
Also great typo on Stafford's stay at Los Prietos--"contentious" objector. I wonder....

My dharma teacher often says "Just to be alive is enough," and your moving story makes that very real. Thank you so much for telling it, just beautiful.

Ugh, $25,000, completely pathetic. May all those firefighters rest in peace.

Glad I'm not alone in wondering "is this news?" Doesn't seem like it's any of my business! Unless I was thirty years younger and putting moves on him, then I guess it would be sort of useful to know.

I'm with tabatha. We need to start major conservation right now. Should have done so before the summer.

My perception is that the quality of the crafts and art in general at the Sunday show is not nearly as high as 15 or 20 years ago. Lots of schlocky stuff. Be that as it may, I'm happy it's there and that local craftspeople are able to make a living as a result.

As for it not being "private"--well, that might be technically true, but not realistically. Sales proceeds go into the pockets of the vendors. Sure they pay fees for the privilege of setting up on a public walkway, but they're in business for profit, not creating a public service. All businesses pay business taxes and other fees, they're part of the cost of doing business.

If there are actually funds from their fees earmarked for advertising, they should be used for that, I agree. But nothing beyond that.

Mountain lion seen around Coyote Rd, too. Ironically, if your mind works that way.

Sad about these bears.
