Message in a bottle

While at a Berkeley, CA beach I found a message-in-a-bottle washed ashore. The beach looks across the bay to downtown San Francisco, and with an incoming tide that may be where it came from.

After I pulled out the cork, inside were two cloves, some seeds, a shell and this note:img_48982

I’m guessing a “fourplex” is a 4-apartment duplex?  Good luck with your list and I hope you have injury free dancing!

Here is song is for you and all the other dreamers…

“Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what’s on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it
I know they’re wrong, wait and see.
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it’s done so far.
What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
we know that it’s probably magic….

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I’ve heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it.
It’s something that I’m supposed to be.
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la la”

  1. that looks like a bong.

  2. that is what wendy thought at first, but it seems to be either an expensive juice container or a perfume bottle.

  3. I like your blog too! That’s so cool you found a real message-in-a-bottle. Looking forward to hiking around Berkeley and San Fran with you. And seeing if Chez Panisse lives up to its rep.
