Artist Peter Adams Tells an “Orville Story”

Story by Peter Adams

orville — he was singular! i am sorry he’s gone. here’s one story:
we arm wrestled at the miramar beach inn during the days of joe the bartender and his ‘secret sauce’. i won, much to the dismay of orville — he was livid and subsequent threats lasted for a few weeks. upon their dissipation, we became bar buddies again. my largest regret from that episode was that i took off my favorite ring [similar to c.g. jung’s gnostic ring] and forgot to put it back on after such an intense match — orville was a very strong lad!
