It's now 11:11 AM and I'm a little dicombobulated.
(Philadelphia airport 4/19/14)
The Marsh Hawk Press launch/party went well. I read "I Forgot" from
"I'm off...like a prom dress!"

One misadventure...I unknowingly lost my cell phone but was reunited with it days later through the good graces of a kind NYC doorman. Thank you, Vincent!
Spent a few memorable days with Thomas Fink and his wife Molly Mason in Port Jefferson on the far end of Long Island. Molly gave me personal tour of the Hamptons. Special point of interest: visiting the Springs cemetery where Jackson Pollock and Frank O'Hara, et al are buried. Beneath the name of a decedent on one of the permanent residents' tombstone were the words: "30 percent off"!
Thomas and I had some great conversations, 2 guitar sessions (he's self-taught and has been playing for 40 years) and a wonderful trip to the Museum of Modern Art.
Wednesday I departed Port Jeff' for Connecticut where I happily visited with relatives until Saturday morning when I began wending my way back to Ohio.
