Site News: An Office Move and the Fever of Feargus Fen
We wanted to do a quick update for our subscribers, since after all the furious activity leading up to and through the Art Festival we've had a September of light activity here.
After losing a week after the Festival to the outbreak in the office of the Fever of Feargus Fen, a really nasty disease with deep roots in Sausalito maritime history* (note asterisk to the left), the second half of September brought some long-planned travel and the surprise loss of our office sublease in Sausalito and an "emergency move."
We are now ensconced in temporary digs as we seek out our new Headquarters for World Conquest in the Name of Sausalito, and October should see a return to our usual patterns.
Special Treat: Our next issue of Sausalito Stories will include the first chapter of an upcoming book by seminal Sausalito blues-rock musician Joe Tate. We don't know whether we found it riveting because it's a fascinating story of life and death that happens to be true, or because it filled in so many colorful parts of Sausalito history. Either way, it's a great read and we think you'll enjoy it. Thanks to Joe for allowing us to share it.
And thanks to you for the privilege of serving such a great group of subscribers! The get well messages earlier this month were very much appreciated.
* (Here's that asterisk we told you about). The historical roots of the Fever of Feargus Fen in Sausalito's waterfront just happen to be fiction we invented to make getting sick as a dog sound more dramatic. But if no one tells the Sausalito Historical Society that we're inventing history out of thin air they'll never know, right?
