Thinker, writer, talker, and, on occasion, part-time lover, Steve Arviso, is a Southern California native. He watches too many movies. His wife, graphic designer and photographer, Adena Arviso, does indeed allow him (encourages him, really) to leave the house dressed like that.

From an interview with Santa Carla (CA) Public Radio, January 1, 2077:
On the morning of October 21, 2049, our father was struck by a car as he walked in the southbound lane of Pacific Coast Highway, somewhere just south of here. They kept his body hooked up to life support for three days before it finally caught up with his brain.
That last bit sounded a bit cold, didn’t it?
Sorry. I was only about four at the time, so I’m about as detached as you are from this. I think. Maybe not, but, ya know, it is what it is. But our mom never really talked with us about it after it happened. And once all the lawsuits and court cases started, whatever little talking there was stopped. So I’ve had to piece most of it together from bits of conversation I overheard between her and our aunts and their lawyers over the years.
But Darla would’ve been eight at the time. And I think her having to see our dad in the hospital like that – hooked up to a bunch of wires and machines, shattered into a million tiny pieces – seeing something like that changes a kid, ya know?
