THE CORRIDOR OF POWER
Carson Mell sent me this beautiful photograph of Brand Park Art and Music Library in Glendale, which was two blocks from the house I lived in during my teens. In those days spent every available moment swooning around this intensely romantic building in a state of otherworldly fervor. This was the original carriage entrance; the boarding alcove is to the left. If this picture extended about ten feet to the right it would show the semispiral alcove where I used to stand, wedged between the walls and almost comatose with ecstasy. I was chased away from there more than once. People must have thought I was crazy. Thanks for the blast, Carson.
