I can feel something tingling in the back of my throat. Couldn't sleep.... Tossing and turning whilst perspiration ran down the tip of my nose. Does this mean for certain that I will be sick? Can I beat this or should I just sit out in the cold with no clothes on to expedite the inevitable?

A girl named Teresa who has stepped up to the plate to help me run the PLEA FOR PEACE YOUTH CENTER PROJECT. I've been so stressed out about this that each passing day would bring me down, but now I feel a boost of energy that something will get done. We met up in San Francisco enjoying breakfast and discussing the hope and direction of the youth center. It was inspiring to say the least. My fingers are crossed that she will be the answer that I've been looking for.

Afterwards, Monica and I walked through the city exploring. San Francisco will always be number one city in the world. The only downfall is the lack of parking. I've been living part time in the city for the last 3 months, but the parking situation has put me into category Orange on the terror alert. After driving an hour and then trying to find parking will put the terror in the most decent of human beings.

So I'm moving back to Los Gatos in April. Who knows how long I will stay. Hopefully it will be just a short stay, but for the time being it will have to do. Monica will be moving there with me, so it will be interesting to see how things unfold in the next year for the two of us.

We had dinner at a grade school friends home.(Jim Rocchio) He lives one block from us in the city. I played with his two sons. They used me as a jungle gym and sat inside my guitar case. It was cute. I played my guitar, sang to them, and they danced. They were wonderful.
