ENTRY 1200 | NOVEMBER
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
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."
