Wow, Ben Jonson really knew how to deliver a toast. I usually just say "Bottoms Up!" What a beautiful, happy photo. Dear Stacey, eat all the cake and ice cream your heart desires. Thank you for your kindness and your wonderful posts on the dance which I especially appreciate. Happy birthday!

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
