Gee, that is simply unbelievable. I mean, like . . really?
I wonder about all that stuff. My gig teaching is about a block away

photographs and posing against it as a backdrop. It must be phenomenal
as an entity yet I see it as lovely, as curious, as typically San
Francisco, yet . . well, I dunno.
