As I grow into the writer I have spent years dreaming of and working towards, I owe cubic tons of gratitude to Brad Newsham. He was the first real writer who appreciated my work. Although a simple a vote of confidence would have been enough, he also awarded me $1,000, giving me an inkling that writing could bring in money.
Now Brad continues to be a changer of lives, an inspiration to the masses. Today, he is inviting anyone (hoping for 450 people) to Ocean Beach in San Francisco to spell out:
with bodies in the sand. A helicopter will arrive and take a picture for a postcards. If this is hard to imagine, check out the “Impeach Both” photo below – it was one of Brad’s original political beach writing creations.
I am grateful to have met Brad and continue to be inspired by his life.
