Butter on Table 7

This is a collection of writings composed at Cemetery Beach, Santa Barbara in 1978-1979. It is a snap shot of my life at the time. Hence it contains thoughts concerning the Bistro (the restaurant at which I worked), the politics of the period, my wife and family. In analyzing these diverse topics I incorporate the Bible, Tarot cards, astrology, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and some Hindu thought. Following is a table of contents of the writings.
