August 4, 2012. A sketch of Alberto Giacometti today, whose elongated sculptures take me back to Switzerland for a moment, far away from super-sized soft drinks and greasy cheeseburgers. We're back in Fresno for the weekend, picking up my son from summer camp at Hume Lake and dropping off my daughter, who will celebrate her 18th birthday with my family, hitting Disneyland and a Dodgers game. After a couple weeks in our house in Hayward, we still can't get internet access. Thank goodness for Starbucks, so we can check email!
