You may have already heard that Lawrence Ferlinghetti left the earthly plane yesterday. He was a man who lived his life with passion and purpose, a man who made people think about things other than ourselves, a man who brought life to a bookstore that brought paperbacks to the people. When I lived in North Beach, I used to peruse the aisles of City Lights Books on occasion, unaware of the history, just because it felt like home.
I am on my way to my current day gig, so I will be brief.
Let's figure out a fun and fitting way to celebrate what would have been his 102nd birthday on March 24th, 2021. Maybe every March 24th after that, too.
Which, as it turns out, would have been New Year's Eve in ancient Roman times. Look it up.

Sharing a note and a few pics to demonstrate how attitude and creativity help make the best of times, no matter the challenge.
Hang in there!
P.s. Thanks to my sister Toni, fb friend Marcy, friend Javier and Pinterest, for the pics.

May this note find you in good health and good spirits. If you have not yet voted, please do so. If you are local to Marin County, please consider the following candidates:
Greg Knell for San Rafael City Council. He is a good guy and a musician, so he understands our point of view and will do what he can to support the arts in our community.
Joe McGarry for Fairfax Town Council. Joe is an ally and an active anti racist.
Vicki Nichols for Sausalito. Ignore the silly SNL skit from last week. Vicki values local history and has been active in civic matters for a long time. She is kind.
Thanks for caring enough to engage.
Keep wearing those masks. Spread love and kindness, not germs.
And please don't worry. It doesn't help, and the stress lowers your immune system.
