Lately, I'm driving in circles that always end at the water.
They closed the road to the freeway entrance closest to my house. I could use the next entrance down, but I'm my father's daughter. I want to find ways to get where I'm going without using the highway.
Dad liked to drive around to see what cities were made of. One empty Sunday afternoon, he and I drove North on San Pablo Avenue, just to see where it went. For your future reference, it goes to San Pablo.
As I make a U-turn on a disconnected piece of Hoffman Blvd., I miss him.
A UC Berkeley professor for over 40 years, he was famous for being an expert on American politics. He also had an uncanny sense of direction. Put him down in any city he had visited even once, and he could find his way.
