    A few weeks ago I mentioned that I have been working on my novel
    "Haight-Ashbury" and was planning to put a chapter up on the web. Several
    people expressed interest in seeing it at that time so in order to excuse my
    shameless promotion of my writing in a photography forum I've added a few
    pictures (actually all I have left from that era) to the site.
    For those who are interested the link is below

    I was living in a small canyon commune just outside of Pasadena in those
    days. My beard was down to the middle of my chest and my hair was down
    to the middle of my back. I actually HAD hair in those days... Your
    stuff brought back a lot of fond memories of runs up the PCH to Big Sur,
    then north to gather and play music with friends on Haight. Thanks for
    reminding me how f$%@ing old I've gotten. *grin*

    Hey, Tony, you ask people to contact you but you don't give an email or link
    to your contact page.
    Just a little FYI.

    I liked it. I didn't need quite all the hooplah in the middle--seemed a bit
    gratuitous. The interesting parts were the young lady run away and the
    arrest of Professor Fox.

    We're you a hippy, Tony?

    Do you know the name of the man in ha0208_0*.jpg ?
    He looks like somebody I used to know, Leonard Wolf.

    All resemblances to real people are purely coincidental.
    Wait, that's the excerpt, not the pictures . . .

    There never were any hippies. It was all a hallucination.

    I suppose I should have put an email link on that page -- I do have one on
    the menu page for the entire site, but that didn't occur to me. I'll add one
    tonight.

    That's really cool, and I apologize for my impertinence.

    Lucky! Between '67-'68 I was enjoying the Chinese New Year festival
    taking place around Saigon ... Didn't get to California until '69

    In more recent times, Leonard Wolf became a vampire scholar.
    He has published at least a dozen books about Dracula etc,
    and some novels and poetry as well.

    In my most humble opinion, you missed a huge part of the culture. Are you
    going to use photographs by other people to fill out the work?

    Those are the pictures I have left - at l;east the ones that could be
    restored. Between theft, a fire, and the vicissitudes of time, most
    3everythign I shot before 1979 is lost. This is one of the reasons I dont'
    consider film to be an archival medium.
