It was the 8th day of Creation, and I was free on a
mission in the City of the Angels, just having flown over the San Gabriel
mountains to California. After landing in LA, I spent a few days at the edge of
time where the great San Andreas Fault seems to form a cliff over the ocean. I
stayed on the beach at The Georgian Hotel and elsewhere, visited friends, then
did some scientific research in Pasadena at Caltech's Milikan, Robinson and
Fairchild Libraries and at the Los Angeles Public Library, where I worked out
the perhelion precession of Mercury using the unified field theory I believe
will replace classical General Relativity. It was the highlight of my Safari. I
worked out the proof next to a huge paper-mache green star reminescent of
Zubeneschamali in the Balance of Libra while seated inside a high glass walkway
hanging over the sparkling library scene with it's towering marble columns. I
had jaunted to the stars.

adventures in Hollywood included a visit to the LaBrea tar pit museum, an
afternoon at Hollywood Cemetary near the graves of Douglas Fairbanks, Marilyn
Monroe, Tyrone Power, and a surprisingly large number of Russians I guess Sergei
Eisenstein might have brought in.

I liked to visit the Roosevelt Hotel acoss from the
Chinese Theatre in the evenings and study their Hollywood Film History exhibit
and read books on filmmaking and on script-writing for video documentaries from
the Hollywood Library or enjoy an alcohol-free strawberry daquiri at this famous
old hotel built over a strawberry patch.
Engineering Bookcase from
Honeywell Period, 1980s.
As a Principal Design Engineer at
Honeywell, I worked on the SST military communications terminal, for which I
recieved also a nice wall decoration "Outstanding Achievement Award". I also
flew to San Diego to examine military printer printhead testing in a laboratory
there in order to set up a similar operation in Tampa, and inspected the
printhead manufacturing operation in Mexico.
The Seagulls of Tampa Bay
Feeding seagulls at the
beach at Tampa Bay could cause such a tremendous swarm of birds in an uproar
that the clouds would begin to form pictures of feeding birds around the scene.
It was one of those experiments with the ghost or mythic imaging in nebulosities
you could easily do. One time in St. Petersburg I saw a parrot perching on a
sailor's hand in the clouds, with it's jaw animated by the wind, as if were
responding to a prompt to speak. Tampa was a haunting, friendly, and beautiful
place, but don't run out of money or friends!
