On January 23, 2003, I presented an unusual evening of storytelling and music.
At LeStat's Coffeehouse Performance Space in San Diego,
musician Mark Langford and myself alternated performing segments
of music and prose reading. His segments were classical
Spanish guitar. Mine were excerpts from my memoir, Becoming Patrick.
Many thanks to those who attended for making it a magical evening.
