Amy and I took a hike today, up the Matt Davis Trail, along the Coastal Trail, and down the Willow trail, which as Amy says, is a heart-breaker going up and a toe-breaker going down (go here for the natural history). The day was sunny, and Stinson beach was spread out below us, really quite a long way down.
Last night we had a conversation about The Canon, inspired by Amy’s reading of 100 years of the Atlantic Monthly, and whether there should be one in the schools, also touching on other topics, such as whether and why it was a universal human value not to kill people. This was accompanied by spaghetti and a good California Cabernet (2003 Napa Cellars).
Abby seems to have broken, or at least bent, her nose, so we are going down to the beach.
