June 8 - World Turns

Harriet rents a van, and we're off

to San Francisco

to pick up flats and chairs from Goat Hall, then back across the bridge to

Berkeley's Live Oak Park

to deliver same, plus platforms and steps, to the Theatre (for double bill of Gian Carlo Menotti's The Old Maid and the Thief, plus a new take on No Exit this weekend), with Suzanna, Krista, and the local tech guy assisting.

There's time

for another walk on the Lafayette-Moraga Trail,

reaching the latter's Center,

on a schizophrenic day of contrasting eastern and

western skies.

Returning to the van,

the redoubt is to sun on 24 before the cascading highlands of Mt. Diablo,

North on 680 past the Mothball Fleet,


Trash Valley

(where the vehicles are tight

but the Stonewind cows, evidently, content),

Wooded Top,

the Suburbs,

Chinese Wall, and Dinosaur Ridge, with views ahead of Twin Sisters and the Vaca Mountains.

I-80 yields further vistas of the Poverty Hills,

Lagoon and

North Lagoon Mountains, including the latter's

East Knoll,

then home to orchestrate page 5 of Elijah Rock: XXIV. Benhadad (The Purge and Jezebel).
