At the Cypress Cemetery in Petaluma. Old San Francisco Library. California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. A set of white stairs.

Dad, Rich, and I at Cypress Hill Cemetery
We often went to the cemetery to "visit" our ancestors. It was a good way to remember and learn about them at the same time. Dad always wore his suit. It was during one of these visits that Dad told me that it was important to him that our line of the Morris name continue on. I was 20 years old at the time and confused about whether I wanted a family of my own or if I wanted to spend my life doing my own thing - I eventually chose the latter.

The California College of Arts and Crafts (above and below)
I enrolled to begin pursuing a career in Commercial Art. Art had always been my 1st love and strong point.

The Main Library at 14th and Grove in San Francisco
I got my first job as a part-time page here and for a while, it appeared as if I was on my way in life.
