Had a fun time reading at Village Books with Rick Barot. We had a bit of a theme going: ekphrastic poems, love & death. We went out afterwards with a group of people to have dinner at The Wild Onion (?). Great food! I especially like the Baked Oysters Three Ways. Yummy! But the funnest part was seeing Oliver and Merideth, and getting to hold their new baby! Lucas is just adorable. A full head of hair. And huge for a 3 week old!
It looks gorgeous out now. I need to get outside . . .
An ekphrastic poem, for you (I tried this one out at the reading last night):
The Medical Venus
— La Specola, Florence, Italy, c. 1775
