Sometimes You Wish For The Old Days But It Is Worth Getting Rid Of Serenity

Sometimes you wish for the past. From the LA Times

“It’s 7 on a Sunday night in the Haight. Outside the Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery a few ghosts from the ’60s occasionally glide by, but inside the food is contemporary — whole roasted quail and moules frites on the menu — despite the old wood bar, stained walls and worn tile floor.
It was the fifth night of a weeklong trip with Steve Dollar, a friend of 25 years, who wanted to travel Highway 1 from near Santa Barbara to where it ends at the edge of the Humboldt County redwoods. As a loyal resident of Brooklyn, N.Y., Steve doesn’t have a driver’s license, so he dragooned me into serving as his wheelman for the trip. It was an easy sell; I’ve long wanted to do a beer aficionado’s trek up the coast”

However, I am goung to risk my spiritual serenity. For a normal person, that roadtrip is all about beer should be friendship and good times. For me, it is about the horrible images of my past. I will not give uo my soberity at any coast even for a such idyllic road trip like that,

    Wondering if your friend Steve spent any time living in Maryland and California in his younger days. Have a high school friend looking for ‘Steve Dollar.’
