Jose was the gentleman in the U.S. Air Force uniform in the top photo. The fellow in the January 1956 photo hadn't quite grown into his uniform.

Islands in general are fascinating as hell, and Santa Catalina, or Catalina Island, is a microcosm rich with story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Catalina_Island,_California. Apparently "C.R." (?), who sent this postcard, wasn't given to long-winded messages.

A piece by myself, written in Maebashi, Japan in 1991, which was published (with a few typos) by Myeongsuk Jeong in Sunflower: A Literary Journal for Freewrites, Berkeley, California, 4th Quarter 1993. A statement inside the publication read that, "Sunflower is a quarterly literary journal for freewrites published in the Bay Area. Our goal is to provide a forum for the exploration and expression of freewriting as defined in Natalie Goldberg's books, WRITING DOWN THE BONES and WILD MIND." Art by Myeongsuk Jeong.
Curiously, the streak at the top of the photograph is not present in the original -- a byproduct of scanning, or a psychic contrail?
