London’s oak not dead, Vox Populi aids Woman’s Club

Hands of time take wing

It seems that quite suddenly the calendar pages must jump forward; we have arrived at a new year. Way back in the day, when my grade school friends and I would contemplate the future, we’d make wagers on whether we’d all still be around in the next century. Back then, it seemed barely possible. In some ways, it still seems like that. 2014? You must be kidding.

But, as I promised in last week’s column, my sweetie and I greeted the new year by breathing in the bracing air at Drake’s Beach in Pt. Reyes. The sparkling sun on the breaking waves, whipping winds and blowing sand, a high tide and a shoreside walk revived us both.

I ended the afternoon with a brief stop at the Pt. Reyes Book Store, picking up a copy of Tom Killion’s Woodcut Prints 2014 calendar. As of this writing, it still rests, tightly packed in its shrink-wrap covering. Let January wait a bit (as Robert Frost begged of October). I’m still enjoying John Muir Law’s illustrated calendar of 2013. Little wonder I can’t quite keep up with the day.

But keep up I must. My two column items today are truly important news. The first story is the rest of a story that ran on the front page.
