Where Nothing Happens

On our trip to the west coast earlier this month we spent a couple of days at Big Sur. While we were there we went to the Henry Miller Library, an eclectic place that is sort of a museum. Henry Miller was a prolific author who also painted (I'd never seen his painting but there were a bunch at a nearby gallery and they were pretty nice). He is best known for Tropic of Cancer which was published in Paris in 1934 but until a obscenity trial which overruled some pornography laws did not get published in the US until 1961. A lot of his books were there as well as other books which were for sale. They have performances out in front sometimes, but what was most interesting was the weird stuff.
