Just one extraordinary interview: Irene Pijoan, painter and long time professor at the San Francisco Art Institute. Pijoan, who passed away eight days after this interview, spoke with a lucidity I have not encountered before. I waited a year before publishing it. Included is a portfolio of her husband's work, painter and UC Berkeley art professor, Craig Nagasawa. In this issue retired chief editor of The Christian Science Monitor joins us as a contributing editor. SF poet and long-time bird store owner, Ron Hobbs, shares three amazing bird stories. One concerns a visit to the bird store of the 16th Karmapa. And there's more.
