CARMELO'S NOTE: Rowe was a good friend. We met a few years back when I was at the Mesa Refuge writers' retreat in Point Reyes Station, just a few blocks away from his house. I fondly recall him taking me and fellow writer Kathleen Kennedy-Townsend, RFK's eldest child, down a beautiful country walk down the edge of Tomales Valley, right underneath the gentle slope where Point Reyes Station looks over the valley, only a fraction of a mile away from St Andreas Fault, we talked about the commons, economic options for the future and so on.
