Petaluma Pete, aka John Maher
It was he who spearheaded the placing of the pianos around Petaluma. “Christopher Stevick and I focus on the Petaluma River Promenade project. After that, tips for Petaluma Pete.” 🙂
A tentative yelp rings out in the twilight, then a few more, until the cries are answered by a howl from across the street, then another down the block. Soon, a chorus of howling rises into the darkness, as it does nightly now. Jimmy Lane captured the primal sounds of his Petaluma neighbors, in a ritual that’s happening around Sonoma County and across the country, as people in coronavirus isolation express solidarity or frustration, or to voice their support for those on the front lines. (Turn up your volume.) Are you howling?
