S.F. - NASH BRIDGES

S an Francisco is a favorite city of mine. Maybe that is the reason I like to watch Nash Bridges on Friday Night. The scenery always reminds me of a place I have been. I also loved the City Lights Bookstore where Lawrence Ferlinghetti remains after 40 years plus of poetry and rhyme. The offical hangout for the beat poets, including Jack Kerouac. Read all about it in my story of San Francisco - The Poet.

The Mountain refers to the new book, Running to the Mountain, by Jon Katz. Jon has become a personal friend through our e-mail responses and our similar interest in Thomas Merton. Katz book was reviewed in February in USA Today and numerous other magazines. It describes a trip he took to a mountain cabin on the edge of New York. His experiences there rival the works of Thoreau and Walden and, in a sense, are reminders of Traveling with Charlie by John Steinbeck.

I did a lengthy review of Running to the Mountain. Check it out!

I hope you will enjoy the website. (Wolfango Horn, Bologna (Italy)

QUOTE OF THE MONTH:


"By heaven! cried my father, springing out of his chair, as he swore, - I have not one appointment belonging to me, which I set so much store by, as I do by these jack-boots, - they were our great-grandfather's, brother Toby, - they were hereditary."

John Graves - Goodbye To A River

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!

Edward Abbey

"About ten years ago I took a job as a seasonal park ranger in a place called Arches National Monument near the little town of Moab in southeast Utah. Why I went there no longer matters; what I found there is the subject of this book. My job began on the first of April and ended on the last day of September. I liked the work and the canyon country and returned the following year for a second season. I would have returned the third year too and each year thereafter but unfortunately for the Arches, a primitive place when I first went there, was developed and improved so well that I had to leave." Edward Abbey - The introduction to Desert Solitaire.

Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.
