I’m slowly making my re-entry into civilization after two weeks on the wide open plains of Wyoming. I think I’m allergic to SoCal air because I’ve been sneezing since I set foot back here in our own valley. The beauty of Wyoming still enchants me. I’ve seen a lot of mountains in my travels but the Tetons are the most spectacular — their jagged peaks pierce the cloud-strewn sky above them. Many years ago I heard a classical music piece called “Jagged Peaks” and the interpretation of the composition has just come to its full dimension for me after seeing the Tetons.

Men, stop what you are doing and pick up a good book. That is one goal of La Cañada Flintridge's One City One Book program, which this year selected Ron Carlson's acclaimed novel of the outdoors, “The Signal,” as the work to read, contemplate and celebrate in November 2012. Carlson will discuss the book in La Cañada on Sunday. Carlson's 2009 novel, which received enthusiastic reviews, follows troubled rancher Mack and his soon-to-be ex-wife Vonnie as they take one last trip into the wilderness in western Wyoming's Wind River Range.

The inspiration to write can be found anywhere, even on a freeway overpass. That was one of the observations author Ron Carlson made Sunday in La Cañada Flintridge as the city celebrated Carlson's 2009 novel “The Signal” as its One City One Book selection for 2012. Carlson, the author of three novels and two collections of short stories, took a break from his work as codirector of the master's writing program at UC Irvine to read from “The Signal” and answer questions before about 70 people at the La Cañada Unified School District meeting room.

Part three of three We broke camp early but the adventure was far from over. Heading south, we followed the Yellowstone River, then, taking a quick jaunt through Western Wyoming we tacked our ship, pointed it west and followed the Pacific sun. This is my last write chronicling discoveries made on this Montana adventure, a class about Lewis and Clark and surviving on the land. My students' moods are euphoric; they savor the sweetness of knowing that they have matched the mountains.

What would you do if you were a successful film editor who had worked on all the theatrical commercials for Walt Disney, Touchstone, and Hollywood studios for 16 years and written a number of how-to books on video editing, getting jobs in Hollywood, and even what questions to ask in the event of a car accident? And, if one of those video editing books you wrote became a major video editing textbook at Columbia University and Southern Methodist University and remained popular with college professors for 14 years?
