In memory of our founder, David A. Kaufelt (1939-2014), we re-present this National Public Radio profile of Kaufelt and his Literary Walking Tour, produced in 1990.

“I have a theory why we all live here—it’s called the Peter Pan theory. Freud said that we are at our most creative when we are in our very early youth, before we’re five years old. That’s where we are here. We wear shorts, we ride bicycles, we have the water, a great symbol of the unconscious, and we’re free to be children here and let our spirits go. There’s nobody in suits and ties telling us what we have to do.”
