Let's just say I've been around and leave it at that.
Interests: The Ohlone people sang that living on the coast was like "dancing on the brink of the world." It still feels something like that, this isolated yet connected California culture. A Psychedelic Furs song says "the beach is backwards, isn't it?" An ocean beach can be considered one of two opposite things: where the land ends and the ocean begins or where the ocean ends and the land begins. This blog is for those who want a view from the brink of the world.
