This isn’t all beautiful women I promise you
This says I have 12,251 photos, which is bonkers

Former US attorney and Dartmouth baseball Brian Stretch not to be confused with Willie McCovey
French or Belgian guy at Varsity Theatre with weird stickers on his computer
I was curious about what looked to me a Nathan Oliveira rip off but they said it was by Cafe founder Borrone so I guess that’s OK , but in this context I like the sour expression of the woman in the Adidas hat
Appearing at Pace Gallery in Palo Alto
Cole Valley mixologist: Steve, Eric, and I had quite an adventure on a Saturday catalyzed by Dartmouth in town to play USF basketball
If you look closely you can see Steven Eric Detler both transfixed by their handheld devices: at DeYoung, at dusk
Our driver said he was a musician so we traded contact info. Later D- sent me this photo; usually they send links to Soundcloud.
editto add, the morning after: SOMETHING DEEPER THAN THESE CHANGES
I woke up this morning, kissed wife and mutt, and zipped down to coffee shop, computer tucked under arm, like Ben Franklin and his loaf of bread. Shortly before I was thinking of the 1st and 15th of these photos — of Michelle Kraus/Allen Ginsburg and the musician, teacher, driver DeJohn DeWitt of Sacramento — and the James Baldwin essay from 1946 published in this months The New Yorker AND my former client the genius Mark Stew Stewart pka Stew who, before he wrote “Passing Strange” the Broadway smash also put out a cd — with his partner Heidi Rodewald — a cd on a small label in LA called “Something Deeper Than These Changes” which I hadn’t realized until 15 years later is a James Baldwin reference and quote. From the first five words of the fifth paragraph of that essay. And I stopped right there. Or it stopped me. Or as Emily said: because I could not stop for death, death kindly stopped for me. I think. James, or Jimmy as Stew says in passing, in PS, says that the young women he thinks of as peers will change by adding body weight and girth and will resemble their mothers. While his boyfriends will start to think about not moving up in the world farther than their fathers. Wow. Thank you, Michelle. Thank you, DeJohn. Thank you, Stew and Heidi. Thank you Jimmy, Allen and Elizabeth Bishop. Shabbat shalom. Make me one with everything.
