happy birthday, Jeffrey. May it be a sweet one. I loved this!

Pat Fargnoli

Thanks so much, Pat!

Thank you for your week on our site. And happy birthday, fellow septuagenarian (recent). -- DL

Thanks so much, David. A real pleasure!

It's four in the morning, a new day is dawning...and this is to a word what I wanted to read just now At eighty-two, which is not as it turns out all that different from seventy, it is good and necessary to be reminded that we can be comforted, and in a terrible place, and expendable, all three. That even if the summer wind is cold in Chicago this year, still birdcall, home, and a few words are all we need.

So beautifully said, and so pleased to have been able to provide some needed words. JL

Another turn on the Wheel, Jeffrey. Have a lovely ride.

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
