Michael Graham was on the wrong kind of a roll. Since 1993, he'd applied for various public art opportunities in and around Laguna Beach - 10, to be exact. Invariably, he'd make it to the finals, right to the cusp of victory, before being turned away. Until last year. The Laguna Hills resident was tapped by Laguna Beach's Arts Commission to install a temporary exhibit at the site of a red British telephone booth on Forest Avenue. Graham was one of several artists whose proposals aimed at revamping the K6 phone kiosk, modeled after Sir Giles Gilbert Scott's 1935 creation.

I kept returning to her self-question during the day, and now here it was again. And it had arrived right in the middle of one of many things that bring me joy — waking to the sounds of a new day. I often muse on the fact that it is a good thing that Laguna Beach is a bird sanctuary.
