Just gotta say:

Doing a poetry reading for a well-known painter friend of mine for one of his classes regarding "inspiration."

Searching through some of my stuff I have posted, also to include with "the Masters."

Thanks fro all for some of the great comments on my mediocre to sometimes good postings over the years.

Best,

IMR

YEP!

P. S. Pass by White Castle at least 3 times a week at Ridge and Ashland. Pass by ..."Pass by! Pass by!" Sounds like something out of Spoon River Anthology, which I love.

Sister-in-law gone.

To Spain.

Two weeks.

I...

(Long pause)

Alone

(Pause.)

Gin

Martini

(Break)

Well...okay...honestly...

Two...

WTF...

...and a half (80 Proof)

They...Gone...

Me...Alone...

Two weeks.

A girl thang.


Wife: Romantic Love.

Love them...all

Adore them

All.

Adoring message left at Hotel front desk in Madrid.

Me...

Diet:

Left-over

Pork chops

Fresh broccoli

Potatoes

No complaints.

But...

Before...

Two (2)

Gin martinis.

Time travels swiftly...

Under the Influence.

The wonders of technology - the internet.



Thank god.

With much love.


Best,
