November 1, 2015, Sunday afternoon, Reading Carlos Castaneda

On Valencia Street
He's reading A Separate Reality: Further Conversations with Don Juan, by Carlos Castaneda. Castaneda is, he said, an anthropologist and a shaman. He found the book on the street.

His favorite author right now is Boethius, a Roman writer who died in AD 524, who, he said, synthesized Christianity and Plato's philosophy together with mystical thinking.
