Now what would Alan Ginsberg and these Naropa stalwarts all be doing up on Flagstaff on such a fine day?! Hard to believe this shot is now 20 years old ...

Just thinkin' out loud,

Who knows what those guys were planting that day! And what a view from the top of Flagstaff, so beautiful.

I miss Jack, Reed and Steven and think of them often.

Look me up if yr ever in city, we can get some food and talk awhile.
