Moonalice poster by Winston Smith
According to Moonalice legend, the origin story of our tribe is a subject of controversy. Our favorite version tells the tale of three wise women who set out from the east to find a very special child. As today’s poster by Winston Smith shows, the three wise women followed the light of a full moon, which led them to San Francisco, our lovely city by the Bay. They traveled incognito, hiding under giant sun hats, bringing gifts of gold, frankincense, and hemp buds. The trip was long, so they used up most of the gold and frankincense, but the three wise women arrived here with a couple of pounds of excellent bud. They never found the kid, but it didn’t matter. The people of San Francisco sampled the bud, found that it was good, and lived happily ever after.
