Wonderful photos, Rob. Some of DL's quotes from that week may complement them. I'll just list them here, shall I? (Hee!)

"Poetry is a form of mistranslation--when you don't understand something, you make a poem out of it."

"...I believe he wrote that poem in his life. Only Emily Dickinson wrote poems after she died. Most poets are not capable of such post mortal composition."

"You have a call."
-DL to an audience member whose gadget is sounding

"You could ask me questions in Mongolian? I don't understand them, but you don't seem to understand much of what I'm saying, so we could have an interesting dialogue."
(Someone says something in Mongolian)
"Oh really?"
"You are?"

I like these photos...I may be snatching one for a painting....

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
