I wish it were free. Or at least under $3 a visit. I can't afford to go there. Can't the city or county or a foundation give enough money to make it free for us poor folk? It's a community treasure inside and out but I'm too poor.

What a wonderful photo of a classy guy with a camera! Paul Wellman is everywhere doing everything to capture that "just right" image. He truly is a community treasure.

I stumbled upon the Nomad Gallery where they also support the Nomad Foundation which helps the desert nomads of Niger. Some beautiful artwork and crafts.

How idyllic were those Dos Pueblos on Gaviota? How did we get to a point that we need to go through such a process? If only we could live more simply.

Will OW please buy from OC man and then she can OWN her own patch of perfection known as Naples? May she use it to wander around this open space on the coast with her dogs and Dr. Oz and know that nature in all its finest has been protected by her largesse!

Can we please spend our tax dollars helping people who feel suicidal and divert the millions going into bridge barriers towards more and more effective mental health programs? Bridges aren't the issue. The sad reality is our society's inability to assist suicidal people appropriately. It's not where they choose to end their lives but rather, why they are choosing to end their lives. Barriers on bridges will not solve the bigger issue. I know one person who admitted to me that the beauty of seeing the Golden Gate Bridge from Alcatraz kept him from jumping off it as was his initial intention. How many others are out there who responded similarly to the healing power of the aesthetic? They are not going to come forward to admit it like the 6 surviving Golden Gate Bridge jumpers did. We need to think differently about this important social issue.

If it was a fire sparked by a machine, we may need to bring back the old fashioned weed whackers - machete and goats.

Can anyone quantify the number of people who have considered jumping off a beautiful bridge and changed their mind because of the beauty of the place? I know one man who took a bus from the Midwest to San Francisco specifically to end his life by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. But beforehand, he took a ferry to Alcatraz, saw the magnificence of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay and changed his mind. He has spent at least the last 20 years living a productive life in the Bay Area, even volunteering on Alcatraz. We don't need to spend money on barriers. We need to spend money removing barriers in people's lives by having them witness the beauty of their surroundings. CalTrans and the State of California could better serve its citizenry by redirecting barrier money to mental health and outdoor education programs.
