Although Wim Wenders says we are in all the photos we take, not just the selfies:


This was taken at Smith-Anderson Gallery, Palo Alto, circa 2013 — he also played Paula Kirkeby’s 80th birthday party at DeSaisset Santa Clara


Bassist Seward McCain, trumpet Rebecca Coupe Franks and drummer Akira Tana, at Lucie Stern Center, during a presentation on history of jazz, circa 2015


Tana and Weiss at the Gunn 50th Ceremony, fall 2014; I remember wearing a green linen shirt.


The visual artist Terry Acebo Davis and concert promoter Mark Weiss at high end coffee house and coffee maker manufactuer outlet, Union Square, San Francisco, circa 2013; we met at Bruce Beasley studio in winter, 2009, Oakland –where she was born — and married in SF, fall, 2017.
