A Letter to Friends

Hi to you, the faithful blog friends of the Slightly Erratic Pagan Sphinx. Now that Bobbie has passed away, I think the regular readers remain Susan, Singing Bear, Dianne, Mac and Jams.The Photo Pholks stop by for the memes but probably don't read the art or personal posts.  Thanks, Beautiful People. 

I'm writing to you briefly from San Francisco, California.  I didn't expect to be here for the last four days of my California trip but it was indeed a nice surprise to be parceled out from Santa Barbara, where I was visiting my daughter and daughter-in-law, and join WP in SF until July 5.  

Today's delights were crepes, fresh orange juice and dark coffee for breakfast and Filmore Jazz off and on all day. 

We are staying in Japan Town, which is very chill, as the San Francisco denizen, Lovely Step-Daughter #1, says.  We met her boyfriend for the first time and we had a genuinely great time out with them last night for dinner, over lots of wine and bustling city-cool restaurant atmosphere. Chill, indeed. Living-wise, I'd much rather San Francisco than New York City. Though I will visit the latter at the Drop of a Hat.

Both states need to get their act together regarding Marriage Equality. It's beyond sad that California rejected the equal marriage law, by popular vote.  Ouch. 

I digress ; sorry.

Listening to the strands of jazz music on Filmore straining up the the sixteenth floor of our hotel in Japantown.  Time to go back down to earth to groove.  :-)

Tomorrow:  San Francisco MoMA and more Filmore Jazz.
Next week:  lots of photos, here at The Pagan Sphinx.

Peace and Love,
Pagan Sphinx

  4. Lady Kenju! How could I? I know you come by occasionally but I didn't know that you often come over without comment. Means a lot to me, thanks!

    Singing Bear: You would love South Beach and the beat musuem, Visuvio, etc. What a cool place this city!

    Jams: you will love it, if you ever visit!

    Lib: I don't want to leave. My first time in the Castro and I saw a man walking up the street to Twin Peaks wearing nothing but cowboy boots and a sailor hat. Woooo-woooo!!! :-)

  8. Hi, Mac and Spadoman. Nice to hear from you both. I'm looking forward to catching up!

    Unfortunately, I'm way behind with life and won't get to post photos just at this moment. Perhaps tonight, I'll try to make a post of my travels. Meanwhile, love, peace, health and happiness!
