It has been nearly two months since friend Rod Perez and I toured the central area of the Stanford University campus on a hot Sunday afternoon. It was the last walk to be recorded on video, as Stanford is one of the most beautiful places around and since then our walks have been more about needed exercise and conversation than photography, so now we usually retrace the same section of a trail that has been covered here earlier.

Between a family wedding and wrap-up revisions to my third book drafted in the three years since my retirement, I've been putting off this Jonal too long, along with another reflection on The Waltons I've been brewing and one on God and space.

Our tour began at "0" on the map above. The other points of interest indicated are the Student Union, "1"; the libraries, "2"; Hoover Tower (the library of the Hoover Institution, the presidental library and think tank dedicated to Herbert Hoover), "3"; Memorial Church, the centerpiece of the nonsectarian university campus, "4"; the Rodin Sculpture Garden and Stanford Museum, "5", and the gay liberation sculpture (Stanford's permanent tribute to political correctness) seen in the final scene in the video, "6."
