Please forward/send this message to Rashani Rea,aka, Tori Harris.

My dearest Tori,

I have been trying to find you, off and on, for years. I knew you in Portola Valley, around 1966, when I rented the studio from your parents, George and Chris, at 43 (I think) Tintern Lane. You were 14ish and I was 21ish, and we became friends. You were also friends with Vicki Veal, and I remember your brother, Bruce. I would love to hear from you. I live in Dallas, TX, with my partner, but we will be moving to NC in the next couple of years. You can reach me at, on FB, or call me at 214-988-6223. I still have the book "Cherry Blossoms", that you gave me, and illustrated with the gold tipped,ink-dip pen I gave you that belonged to my grandfather. Will you take the stickers out of my sock, while I take the wheelbarrel out for a walk???
