A year ago, right before our job site closed. We stopped to look at these flowers on our lunch break. It felt like a heady spring. I was painting and sanding in these coveralls that were 2 ft too long for me, but used my arsenal of safety pins to fix it. It was fun, we had a good day. Seems like a lifetime ago.

RIP Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Thank you for providing us with life-changing paperbacks to carry in our pockets as we travel along. Thank you for trying to save Jack by letting him stay at your pad in Big Sur, and all the other people that you gave a platform to. How kind you were to me, just a youngster, when I used to make your double espressos on those bright afternoons. It was fun to listen to you and your cool friends talk shop all day. Thanks for keeping art alive. It kept you going for 101 years.
