edit to add, an hour later: I was sitting in City Hall nodding off in a Committee of Policy and Services meeting on City Audit when my phone buzzed to tell me that the Joe Show was this week, Thursday. I jumped up and left meeting, waking the entire row, and within 8 minutes was posing Joe in the twilight. But when Terry, my Terry, Terry Acebo Davis the former two-term PA Arts Commissioner got back from her day-night job, on bike, she suggested that we swap out the immediacy of my photo for the reportage of our recent visit to the Zirker Studios, two-miles from City Hall, in nearby Menlo or MenAlto.
