John Dowling, San Francisco artist and poet
. Your friends remember you with love , and speak of happy times they enjoyed with you, and the beauty of your art continues to inspire them.

A Prayer on my lips
Sounds as muttering
To passerby
As I walk down the street
I sound a fitful chant
To myself and my idea
Of compassion and the
Eternal moment

My steps and thoughts are fleeting
The traffic drifts unconsciously
As people walk past me
Hopefully not noticing
My repetition,
gesture and movement.

The one was Texas Medicine
And the other was railroad gin.

And like a fool I mixed them
And they strangled up my mind
Now people just get uglier
And I have no sense of time.


Bob Dylan, “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again” Inspired by Bob Dylan’s lyrics, Peter Coyote’s new memior comes to grip with the competing forces of his life.

Forest Books logoIn 2013, Gregory Wood, proprietor of FOREST BOOKS in the mission for 23 years needed to find a new location for his Forest Books. Fortunately fate led him to a perfect location in Buchanan Plaza, in Japantown.
Forest Books has always been a serene oasis of curated exceptional quality used, out of print and rare books in many genres of interest. I find an added benefit of time spent in Forest Books quiet gentle space of inspiration and beautifully organized books in that it very relaxing and as I leave returning to everyday life I feel it lingering with me.

I have spoken with many people who have told me they found books they had been seeking for many years at Forest Books and I myself on the very first time I visited was excited to find a book on one of my favorite artists Ben Shahn edited by John D. Morse (1972). On my last visit, I was happy to I find a book of Lew Welsh poetry in perfect condition..

Stop by and say hello to Gregory Wood and see for yourself the infinite variety of books he has available. Perhaps that book you have been searching for will be there waiting for you… in any case, I think you will enjoy your visit... nicole, sfheart.com
