I'm setting out this week for a week in the Monterey area on the central Coast.
Thursday night, 7 p.m., I'll give a talk at San Carlos Cathedral, pictured above. The oldest building in California, the oldest jokes...No, seriously, I'm going to come up with some new ones on the long drive up. Everyone's invited: Catholics, alkies, Catholic alkies, anti-Catholic alkies, non-alkies, non-Catholics.
On the way back home, I'll stop in Santa Maria and spend a night or two with my friends from the Guadalupe Catholic Worker. More Lenten joy. I'm fasting (more or less) from sugar.
