January 16, 2007 -- Wednesday evening

Reading Orbital Decay, by Allen Steele. He found it in the street at 25th and Mission--it's eighties style sci fi. He'd made it to page 127, but, that said,

His finals words to me--Thank you for pulling me out of this trashy book.

A favorite author--Tom Robbins, for the way he sees the world.

If he were to write his own book, it'd be about people's desire to create art and why. Why we chase that spark so hard, with word, picture or sound, to describe something that is inside.

He's a photographer.
