RAW DAY 2017 – notes and photos

An enthusiastic gathering of RAW fans and friends Found the Others at the Museum of Art and History in Santa Cruz on July 23rd, 2017. I’m sure there were many meaningful encounters during the day, but the meeting of the “daughters” gave me a deep smile. Bob’s daughter Christina Pearson met Daisy Eris Campbell, writer/director of Cosmic Trigger The Play, and daughter of Ken Campbell, producer of Illuminatus! (the play).

RAW Auction 2016!

Matters of the heart; One of my personal loose ends is sorting through my remaining boxes of my parent’s possessions. A couple of the possessions I have integrated into my daily life, an object sitting on a shelf, or a shirt hanging in my closet, a book in the bookcase. But the truth is everything else stays all boxed up, and relatively useless unless you feel like developing muscles lugging boxes around. I don’t, and it is time to make these items available to others who may enjoy them.
