Stripped of PHS junior high VP office due to 2 Warnings turning into 2 Unsatisfactories in citizenship (PROTEST DENIED) gave mother opportunity to send me to Anna Head School. Totally unfair, although I loved being brainy, studying hard, not wearing make-up or being distracted by BOYS. Thank you Earl for keeping me in the PHS '62 loop!

School Story

I had a long life at UC Berkeley: BA Social Welfare 1966; MS in Library and Information Studies 1974; tenured librarian 1981-2006; Distinguished Emerita Librarian 2007. (The Distinguished was in lieu of a 5% merit increase when UCB was broke!) There I launched the first-ever image database on WWW 1994. Life-long visual artist with long exhibition history. See my website www.snowstudios.com. Recently moved out of artist live/work studio into a single family home for the first time, featured on East Bay American Institute of Architects tour 2013 and in Dec. 2014 issue of Diablo Magazine. House is available for small, local reunions!

Steve was a trooper. I remember riding on the back of his scooter. He says we went to Moe's bookstore when we were still in high school. That seemed very adventuresome to me. He liked to expand his boundaries. I believe Steve died of complications from Parkinson's Disease. He had deep tissue brain stimulation to moderate the PD. I didn't realize that the probes are left in the brain. He came to my house for a small gathering about 3 or 4 years ago, walked in 3 little horns. When I had the nerve to ask him about his horns and his PD, he said in conclusion "It's been one helluva ride!"

I painted this picture from a number of snapshots I took when Kathy and I drove to Juniper Campground, high on Mt. Diablo. This picture shows the four peaks of Mt. Diablo -- Eagle Peak, Mt. Olympia, North Peak, and Mt. Diablo. We made it half way to Deer Flat before the weather closed in on us and we headed back to the car. We did not wish to be drenched.

I've having an exhibit of my photographs at the Alameda County Law Library until Dec. 20 of this year, 2016. The Law Library is located at 125 Twelfth Street, Oakland, across from the old white courthouse near Lake Merritt. The exhibit is entitled "Brief Encounters: Meeting Street People." About 150 photos of street people I've met, and know by name, over an 8 year period beginning with the day President Obama was first elected.
