« Libraries: A Love Story [Charles Coe] | Main | Day 4: A Year of Thursdays [by Lisa Vihos] »

September 18, 2014


This is so lovely, Alan. When I got to the part about Grandpa Charlie meeting Apollinaire on the street in Paris, I teared up and stayed that way until the end. What a great idea! Memoir that tells not only what happened, but what might have happened, could have happened, should have happened. You have given me a much needed shot in the arm. Maybe my "hovering memoir" that I mentioned on Day 1 this week will start flying again. Not using your technique, mind you, just flying in its own universe. Thanks for the jolt. Best, Lisa

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

in the dark
