The Governor’s Gated Community

February 8th, 2009 · No Comments

The Governor’s Mansion that Ronald Regan and his wife Nancy had built in 1974 was never lived in by a governor. Now, the Carmichael ranch house immortalized by writer Joan Didion in her book The White Album has become a gated community for four new tract homes on a golf course. One of them is […]

They Love A Girl In A Uniform

August 25th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I spent the entire summer I turned 17 working on an archaeological dig in Israel. It was for college credit and it was the “Holy Land.” Every morning we’d get up around 3 AM and dig away at Tel Dor until noon when it became too hot to do much of anything but float in […]

NorCal Not-So-Secret Spot

August 14th, 2008 · No Comments

I grew up in these woods and yet, this is the first time I’ve ever been to Burney Falls. Crazy how amazingly beautiful and incongruous these falls are. The high desert scrub surrounding this lush Eden would never suggest there was something like right off the side of the road. Even stranger: a half mile […]

Remote Control Draplin

March 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Designer Aaron Draplin lives for the road and it’s documentation. He is currently on day 44 of what he is calling the 2007 DDC Spring Tour. In an email he sent this morning Aaron signed off with the words “getting lucky in Kentucky.” I immediately thought of bourbon. Which is odd, because I don’t drink […]

North By Southwest

March 13th, 2007 · No Comments

The highlight of this day in my life. News from Southwest Airlines (via email to both of us) that starting this month they will begin direct flights from San Diego to Reno. Ninety-two minutes to heaven. Direct. Looks like some flight attendants are going to get real tired of seeing us board those flights. And, […]

The Peter Pan Principle

February 15th, 2007 · No Comments

A little reminder to those who have forgotten: Disneyland is still the happiest place on earth, and the Peter Pan’s Flight in Fantasyland is (regardless of the technological advances shown on Indiana Jones) still the finest ride ever created at any amusement park in the world. While the psycho/sexual ramifications of an adult male admitting […]
