Visiting the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers

Once a month, there is a free day at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers, so I took the opportunity to invite a friend, enjoy the flowers and the amazing building, as well as taking some photographs.

San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Freedom Band Camp at Cazadero

I had a blast with the San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Freedom Band campers who went to Cazadero this past weekend. Here are the pictures!

Please let me know if you want a hi-res version of one of the pictures or if you want your picture removed from this page. Also, please RSVP for the Performance Salon on Saturday, May 22, at http://willdoherty.org/party/

Two Trees

Two trees grew side by side
nourished by the same soil
their roots intertwining slowly
year after year.

Two trees who as their trunks widened grew taller and taller
shading each other from the harsh heat of the sun
sheltering each other from the harsh winds of the storms
leaves and twigs falling mixed on the ground.

Limb in limb growing
root reaching root
solid on their own
together two trees.

(For Philip.)
