“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite.” ― Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

Radicals, romantics, and regulars,
seek solace,
against the rising tide of progress.

In a small, well-worn room in the heart of North Beach,
the soul of San Francisco makes its last stand.

Worn tables and chairs fill the room;
while fifty years of photos,
hint at great, untold stories.

Poets, poseurs, and politicians
play their parts.
Talking, typing, writing, reading-
Channeling the beats, wishing to belong.

A thick patina of history covers every surface;
transforming a simple coffee shop
into a shrine that makes the heart sing.

Esalen Arabesque
By Christopher Michel

For the final act,
the cast pulls out all the stops.

Water and light dance with fury.
Leaping, reaching, tumbling, falling.

A silent ballet performed only once;
In the last moments of the Ocean's Light.

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” - Charles Dickens, Tale of Two Cities.  Photograph by me of The Intervention of the Sabine Women, 1799 (Louvre), by Jacques-Louis David.

The Road Not Taken:
Met this Kapuna in Paia.  Went up to him and asked if I could take his portrait.  He looked up at me slowly and said, "ok."  After a few pictures, I offered to share his portrait and handed him one of my cards (each one has a different image).  This one was of a sunset in Joshua Tree National Park.  He looked at the card for a long while and just said, "Beautiful."  That was it.  I wonder about his life story.  My bet - he chose the less traveled, but damn interesting, road.

As any good (and not so good) photographer would do in Hawaii, I went in search of a nice spot to shoot the sunset.  I hiked for a while along the shore and discovered a flat, secluded ledge just below a volcanic cliff.  I settled in for an hour of reading and watching.  As the sun neared the horizon, there was a hint of red in the sky and then it faded to a dull blue.  Just like yesterday, it didn't appear that the gods were cooperating so I packed up to climb up the ledge and head home.  I took a while to pack up and in that time, the sky began to glow - slowly at first and then with incredible intensity.  And then the islands gave me a show I won't soon forget.  A good lesson in perseverance and letting go.  So, from me and the Islands to you: "Maui Sunset"
