Helen Keller described life as "a grand adventure or nothing at all".
This blog is about my own grand adventures over more than six decades. I could tell you about my family, friends and loves; or my experience with loss, death, divorce, betrayal, and other life tragedies.
But life remains a grand adventure,
and its those experiences I'll pass along to you.
A Philosophy of Radical Aliveness
"Yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision; but today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope."
As we drive North from San Francisco Highway 1 is a twisting-turning, two lane highway that parallels the California Coast. The shoreline is often rugged with cliffs, and in other places wide beaches. Some of the time it is raining or drenched in fog. Out of nowhere we come upon a line of parked cars along the edge of the highway, and then a wide spot in the road -- with valet parking. As we pass by we see people barbecuing, and sitting around tables. We realize it is a place selling fresh oysters, and we turn around and join them. It turns out to the Hog Island Oyster Company in Tomales Bay. We have an amazing lunch of oysters, fresh bread and cheese.
