"What's this?" I asked Boyfriend "this is freakin' me out." As you may remember I worked for Lou Harrison many years ago. Boyfriend confessed he had put the little note on the table just to freak me out and he had found it in a book he had checked out from the UCSC library called "Social Security; the Phony Crisis". The calligraphy is Lou's for sure, as is the signature, I had a signature stamp that was exactly the same for signing letters. And this is exactly the sort of thing he would say. Lou passed in '03 and how this bit of him came to be it that book could be any of 10,000 stories and the chances that it would find it's way to me are astronomical........A latent treasure surfaces unexpectedly and now I share it with you. Read it and go make something beautiful and tender, be it art or food or love or a garden or..............Good luck, yeah!
