I can only hope to live as long and productive a life.

Yay Ferlinghetti! What a long and productive, well lived life. We saw him read last year or so at City Lights Books for Poetry as Insurgent Art, and where he sat at a table with mic and a bottle of Pellegrino. Apart from being a little hard of hearing, he was great, articulate and strong minded.

BJ: Wish I could have been there. I'd have him sign my dog-eared copy of A Coney Island of the Mind.
