‘The right vibe’
I met Mr. Coyote three times–once randomly on the street in San Francisco–and was blown away by his kindness and generosity in conversation [‘Looking back and moving on,’ April 24]. Not knowing me from Adam, he introduced me to his family including his amazing granddaughter and they were as beautiful and cordial as he is.
I didn’t know about his Buddhist beliefs until seeing him at a recent book signing; but that totally speaks to his gentle way and openness to strangers. He is a brilliant writer and an inspirational human being. I’m sorry to read he no longer resides in Marin. I certainly understand his need to be where he feels the right vibe. Bravo to Peter Coyote for taking his genius to the next level and remaining dedicated to improving the lives of others.
