Back to sunny California/Slide Show Oct 29 in Sebastopol at Copperfield Books

We got back late yesterday afternoon, picked up the Mini, and came down the hill just above Stinson Beach as the sun was setting over the ocean. On the way over the mountain we stopped for a minute so I could run in and reconnect with mountain (Mt. Tamalpais) spirit, splashed some Fern Creek water on my face; today I’m going for a short run on the beach and will get into the water to do same with ocean spirit. Boy, I missed you guys! I’m so glad to be home, I’m inspired by the lengthy change of scene and exposure to such different people and culture. Right now it’s a blue-sky sunny California day and I’m listening to Parisian street pianist Roland Godard’s CD. Best of both worlds

We’ve had over 6″ of rain this year, which is about 6″ more than normal, and hoping for a wet winter.

Tomorrow (Thursday, 10/29) at 7 PM I’m doing a slide show of Builders of the Pacific Coast at Copperfield’s Books in Sebastopol (138 North Main Street). [Google Map Link]

More to follow when I get my head screwed back on.

About Lloyd Kahn

He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
