OMG this is perfect! I love everything about this post, from the "shiny as a shoe" Luella to "Little Arithmatic" and right through to the (be still my heart) seared, rare steaks and slutty wine (what slut doesn't love a slutty wine?). A fantastic week of posts Rebecca. See you in NYC! I hope you will consider a return to blogging here. Stacey

My Pumpkinhead, what a joy to read your posts this week! (And not only because you've publicly called me a wonderful cook, and flattery gets you everywhere.) I reveled in reading each piece; the ease and casual intellect of your creative nonfiction is, seriously, my new standard for the form.

I am, as always, impressed. (Also, as always, I love you, sister!)

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.
