Chez Sistery, San Francisco.
Rising at 05.30. Tart To Tart just
after 07.00 I…
… because The Crepevine doesn’t open until 07.30
When it did I…
Returning to the back office of Chez Sistery & looking
at the photographs of us taken by our Father I…
… on my first waking day on the West Coast, I look & I
see that the Brother was in charge. Looking at how we are today, I can see that
the Sister is in charge.
I found myself wondering: how did that come to be? What
happened to bring my Sister forward, and her Brother to step backwards?
14.54 Lunch at the Gratitude Café…
This is Patricia’s favourite local
eatery, and I had instructions to come here for lunch, instructions accompanied
by a Gratitude Café giftcard to pay for arising eating’s. The waitress asked
the question of the day…
Q. What inspires you about the time we are
we might participate in a future that is not yet written.
Superb food. I would not have been
surprised to find a restaurant such as this in San Francisco in 1969, when I
first visited; nor in several places in the US during 1973. But not during the
1980s or 1990s or the Noughties. I will be returning here.

turned & i can't get back into it. perhaps for ade & tony &
pat & gavin, all good constant players, Crimson is another version of
what they do everyday. it's not like that at all for me. i have to be
psyched, or in the Crimson story, f...ing p-syched. to get into a Crimson
mindset is a huge undertaking for me, difficult to explain to anyone,
including Toyah. it's like, everything else stops for the period. even to
get ready for april-may, my focus remains engaged. so, i hadn't switched
off from last august. then, for all the reasons we know below, i switched
off & a different set of life-parameters come into play. not sure what
the future holds, and that works well for me. but, the switch is
i'd love to come & visit the
Basement again, and ade & your goodself are invited to visit

snapped like whipcords propelling us towards the Gratitude café.
