Big Sur & Movie Stars

A traveler came through my gallery this morning and stayed to talk a spell. His first trip here was in the 60’s. His last trip was three years ago when he volunteered to fight the fires.

In the 60’s he’d stopped in front of a Big Sur bulletin board posted with local events. DANCE TONIGHT AT THE GRANGE was on the top with comments scribbled below. Rain expected? and an answer. Will there be food? And an answer. Who’s playing? And an answer. Then, in possibly the best description of this small, proud of itself community, the question Where does Elizabeth Taylor live. Followed by, Who’s Elizabeth Taylor?

Morning stirrings outside the gallery from July 4th revelers, Wanna get a beer and donut?

I love my town.
