Update 7/29/16

July 29, 2016.  Please know that I have paid for another week at the Adelaide travel hostel in San Francisco; my exit date is now next Sunday.Spent today interviewing with the housing specialist at Berkeley Senior Center...have lists for the bay area to consider.  

Meanwhile, am reading through John Trudell's collected writings "Lines from a Mined Mind".  This has the lyrics from his recordings, as well as poems etcetera, beginning from 1983.  First took notice of his radical example when he was a spokesperson during the occupation of Alcatraz Island in the 70s as a member of the American Indian Movement (AIM).  Saw him perform with his band at the University of Utah, when I was working with Shoshone medicine man Corbin Harney, setting up the Great Basin Gathering.  Powerful individuals!  It was most fortunate to have been in their company.  The beat goes on.

P.S. Spent a memorable evening at the arts bar Noc Noc in the lower Haight discussing current American politics and the complete failure of postmodernism, downing three pints of Chicago's Goose IPA in the process.  ~NEVER GIVE UP~
