November 18th, 2023: Greetings from Barcelona! We made it to the La Sagrada Familia this week, and wow. The inside has been closed in my past visits so it was great to be able to make it inside. The way the light flowed through the building and how the pillars took the form of trees is hard to describe. It’s magnificent. This crappy picture really doesn’t do it justice, but is the best one I got:
A packed issue. Congrats on the book sales, and how fun to have an international audience recognizing you in the streets. And I particularly enjoyed the Bukowski memo!
Paul this is happening to me!! My sabbatical started Sept 1 and since then the people I’m meeting are such better “matches”. It makes sense in a way because before people would see me as my work identity and friend that person vs now I’m doing things I love and people friend the person who is more authentically me.
