For those of you who love to travel and enjoy the company of good literature, Postcards from Gravelly Beach is an essential companion. On many an occasion, because of work, I find myself alone in a new city exploring the sights and sounds. Like a good travel companion, Dave has been with me on many a long walk with just the right thing to say. A sliver of appropriate introspection here, a recital of inspiring poetry there, his selections always hit the mark and leave the indelible impressions of other travels on my mind. I have to admit I have stumbled upon a few bummers, but to hear him read To You with the winds of the Columbia behind him, I can’t wait to find him on a gravely beach one day and thank him.
