Where I’m staying

After car service to LaGuardia, renting a car, driving to Long Island City, taking the truly beautiful Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan and the George Washington Bridge to NJ and the yes-it-really-is-scenic Palisades Parkway up to/back to NY and the thruway and a stop for lunch in New Palz, I’m here. A walk by the creek, some time for free writing, and a little dog named Lucy.

My return to New York

Last night, after traipsing around the Museum of Natural History and Central Park, Laurie and I took the train down to the Village.

It was a good time–an enthusiastic audience and a whole lotta wonderful poems. And my friends Billy and Maureen came–so good to catch up, if only for an hour or two and only part way.

Then we all went to dinner and shared stories of Austen, Paris, Rotterdam, and Patterson.
