I just pulled in to Santa Cruz an hour ago after what became–what with heavy traffic in Santa Rosa and a dinner stop in San Francisco–a nine hour drive, the first leg on my mid-California one week book tour. The highlight of the drive was crossing the Golden Gate Bridge into the city in late afternoon, golden sunlight.
Tif Renee, who designed this site, has updated the calendar page with specifics so that if you are in Santa Cruz/Berkeley/Davis area you can find where I’ll be speaking over the next few days.
Tomorrow Evelyn Hall will be interviewing me on Santa Cruz Free Radio from 10-12 PST and you can listen in from their web streaming page. When I retrieved my email a few minutes ago, I found out that an old friend and her daughter are in Santa Cruz this weekend and plan to come to the event at Bookshop Santa Cruz. Two of the people I interviewed for the book and Laura Davis, who write the introduction, will be there, too. It is starting to feel like a party.
Right now I have my fingers crossed that the weather will calm down. If it’s a good day tomorrow, I plan to go diving, my first time in the Pacific.
Right now, though, bed is looking really good.
