A Rare One

BerriganPhoto by Clancy Dunigan, a founding member of the Reagan-era Bartimaeus Community in Berkeley, CA.  Clancy lives on Whidbey Island in Washington state with his partner Marcia and hosts “Clancy’s Bar & Grill,” an award-winning blues radio show, every Thursday night on 90.7 KSER in Seattle.  Dunigan recently explained his shot of the late Daniel Berrigan:

 

For me, a rare one, as he looked into the camera. Usually I found Dan looking away or with eyes cast down.  The luck of the Irish we will call it.  We had just finished listening to Dan’s take on Isaiah in a tent outside the Nev. Test Site, at a Pacific Life Community gig.  Dan suggested we all take a walk into the desert, find a place to sit or stand and consider the Scripture, pray, and listen. This photo was taken after that, as folk returned to the tent.
