« Name the Poet | Main | Shave and a Haircut by Richard Garcia »

July 23, 2009


Richard: thanks for the stories! and the amazing photo of Tim's place. It's hot out here in L.A. today; the kind of day that divides us into water-cooler-sized oases of A/C (aka houses). But you really gave me the feeling of a visit to James Island--to other folks! Thank you!

Tim is a philosopher for the new millennium. I want him to cut my hair.

I am going to start a James Island tour that will include a haircut at the Bushwacker's; a night at the Sand Dollar Social Club, a surfing movie at The Daily Dose, a fish sandwich from a truck parked at Camp and Dills Bluff; a martini at our secret bench on the Stono River and a dip in the creek behind our house.

Sign me up!

Me too!

I'll take that tour.
Great post, Richard. I loved reading it.
