Central Valley

by Terrance Mc Arthur
& Janice Stevens


The Great Central Valley. The San Joaquin Valley. The Heart of California. The Big Valley.
It’s an amazing place to explore, and it’s even better to explore it with people you like. Two of my favorite traveling companions are Pat Hunter and Janice Stevens, although I’ve never shared a car with them. I travel in their books. With Hunter’s delicate watercolors and Stevens’ concise prose, they’ve helped me explore Fresno’s architectural gems, the twenty-one missions of California’s El Camino Real, the stomping grounds of William Saroyan’s past, and Highway 1’s stretch up the California coastline from Mexico to Oakland.

Film productions are known for its size and scale of people working together. Have you seen the end credits to a film? You just see hundreds and sometimes even thousands of names scroll up the screen, people representing different departments to make one complete project. You got the director, writer(s), producers, make-up department, casting director(s), production designer, cinematographer, composer, visual effects, special effects, and the list goes on.

If strolling is your thing and if you like meeting new people, there will be no excuses for being sedentary or lonely after you read this article. If you live in or around Fresno, pick a day of the week and there is a place to gather with friendly people, exchange ideas, and be supported in your own growth.
I am not referring to a self-help group like A.A.
I am referring to Toastmasters!
