I grew up as a poet, writer, artist, wife and Mom in San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
Recently, after a dozen years of officiating at weddings, I compiled a book of 'best practices' for how to conduct meaningful (and legal) weddings: The Wedding Officiant's Guide (Chronicle Books, Dec 2014). I was trained by my father, a minister who had performed more than eleven hundred uniquely tailored weddings in his lifetime.

She had painted it yellow, added a pink flower and green stem, and in black, she painted "Lisa's Writer's Block" across two sides. I make sure it is in every office I write in. As long as it's out there, it isn't in me.(less)

This is a good read, rich in sensory detail and wise sayings to ponder. Not only a memoir but portraits of places, like Santa Cruz, and communities. I especially liked the profile Evans created of the gifted writer and teacher Gabriele Rico, and all ...more
