Its a late Saturday afternoon slipping into evening. Hint of Spring pushing away winter.

It was an exciting day at the San Francisco Mint on March 04, 2017. What a great turn-out, over 6200 people walked through the historic Mint halls and restored public rooms where miners and savvy businessmen alike traveled to exchange their gold for newly minted dollars and coins. Today, The Mint serves the City for private and public events, and is slated to be converted for a more consistent use.

Editing is moving along, I am making do with this current status of recovery from a nerve injury to sort through material shot, pulling together some short stories in video and photos.

Thank you for all those who return and view the Sweet Entertainment blog. I hope this summer is good to you. I have been on a hiatus for the last several weeks, a moment of recalibration. In some traditions, there is a day in the year called the “day outside of time” – I have remembered this well, because my birthday falls on the day after – a fact that has been interpreted to me as the Head of the Serpent, the first day of the coiling snake that is the number count of days making up year in the … Continue reading Haitus
