Meeting Mr. Hullman
There was a fundamental disconnect as he thrust out his hand to shake mine and missed three feet wide.
Art Of Travel
When the Rainbow Umbrella Man showed up Things came to a grinding halt in Mill Valley. Folks looked on shocked at all the colors. Some said he hid from the sun

Of wondrous things and myths of fame
Plucked from a fair and dainty dame.
