"Maitri" Bliss

The photo was taken this evening during the Maitri's BLISS Gala Event at the Fort Mason Officer's Club in San Francisco. "Maitri," pronounced "MY-tree," is a Sanskrit word that means "compassionate friendship." The joyful BLISS event this evening was honoring the legacy of Maitri founder Issan Dorsey and commemorating Maitri’s 20th anniversary. Armistead Maupin, (who arrived with Mark Leno), was a guest speaker tonight. Georgia Fuller, one of my favorite regulars at the BIG 4 Restaurant, is on the Maitri Board of Directors and is also on the Event Committee. Several weeks ago at the BIG 4, she asked if I would donate some of my photographs for tonight’s silent auction. I did, and in return, thanks to Georgia, I attended tonight’s celebration, ate delicious food, met many wonderful people, took lots of great photos, thoroughly enjoyed the lively entertainment, and, learned more about this remarkable, compassionate, care-giving hospice. For more on Maitri and today’s BLISS event, please be sure to visit their web site...

New photos have recently been added to my web site in the sections, ON THE WALLS, AROUND THE HOUSE, SAN FRANCISCO VIEWS, and CITY HALL.
