One of my best friends from college is staying in Berkeley and I met her for coffee across from the Monterey Market.

While I waited I read this new paperback from New York Review Books Classics, a series that never seems to print a bad book.

After coffee we went for a walk through the North Berkeley neighborhoods where we had lived as starving students in the 70s.

North Berkeley serenity, spruced up a good deal since the time we were college students in these neighborhoods.
