The Healdsburg Bench Bunch

The notorious Healdsburg Downtown Bakery and Creamery Bench Bunch - a ten year old informal, opinionated, disparate group of malcontents, braggarts, ne'er-do-wells,  do-gooders, and hangers-on.                                          (staff)    (K-9s)

(Between friends differences in taste or opinion are irritating in direct proportion to their triviality. W. H. Auden)

 

November 22, 2002 - Benchwarmers in attendance: Jim Fagen, Richard Janosko, Mike "Jake" Hogan, Sandy Kosman, Claude Fuchs, Claudia Baron, Martha Kemp, Dotty and Jim Walters, Michael Coyle, Lynne Opperman

Recently Wade Hoffer modestly commented on his own work saying, among other things, many other things:

 “My task is to steer away from the recalcitrance of reality, its sullen and resentful nature. I seek a sublime level of concentration and reduction, attempting a clear alternative to the velocity of modern life. I wish for my work to stay with someone as a memory of something that is faint, oblique and intangible.”

 

What'd he say?
