But it wasn’t just the reading that put me in this good mood. It was visiting the Bagel Bards yesterday morning and the great conversation on the ride to and from with a friend. It was mentally preparing myself to read as the lone reader, not part of an ensemble. It was the people who came out, including a friend who drove two hours to hear me read. It was the lunch before, the drinks after, and the after drinks after. It was the new blouse. It was coming home to the quiet house and waking up in a quiet house. It was staying in bed until noon. Feeling very grateful today.
Haven’t felt this good in a while. I feel like my old self again—only better!
Working on a grant application, supposedly.
Doug Holder of The Somerville News included my poem “Nothing Fancy” in his column. (Scroll down past the fold.) Thanks Doug.
