Honoring the life and work of John Ross
Honoring the life and work of John Ross at Cafe la Boheme San Francisco, on the fifth anniversary of his death. He wanted "Never learned to be a prisoner," to be etched on his grave. Then, in a characteristic twist, his will expressed his desire to be cremated and have his friends spread his ashes from the window a moving #14 Mission St. bus. As a first person witness/participant, I can attest this — with Nancy Charraga Corlay, Jeff Conant, Laboheme Awad, John Avalos, Phil Hutchings, Fernando Marti, Tony Ryan and Carolina Dutton.
