which was almost heaven...

Goodbye

 Hobie Alter

When he was a young man, Hobie Alter had a clear vision of his future: He didn't want a job that would require hard-soled shoes, and he didn't want to work east of Pacific Coast Highway.

in the morning
we watch the storm gather itself

like a beautiful, mysterious painting...

the mission , san francisco, today. 
one couldn't create this if they tried. 
the happenstance of peeling street posters and time.

How lucky to have a mother
who takes you to the sea
and brings her paints and charcoal
and some for you too
and leaves behind
such a treasure for me to find...

beautiful thoughts
beautiful mail.
