Signal Hill has long been a communications point on the Southern California landscape. In an earlier era, Native Americans signaled their brethren with fire and smoke, from Santa Catalina Island to the foothills of the Coastal Range bordering what is now L.A.

Today the signals are electronic, connecting us--at the click of a mouse--to vast, new worldwide networks.

I seldom go directly
To the thing itself;

All mere fancy dancing.

Until Kay Ryan reminds me
To see the mother-daughter
Walking hand in hand to school.
