I lie on a bench by a tree
And experience infinity
With nothing to do
But look over at you
While you lie staring at me.
A blissful day in isolation, part of it on the terrace snoozing in the sun, mostly indoors working on the novel. We three ate dinner out there as the sun was setting, a cold macaroni salad with melon for dessert. A productive day with some phone chatter including a call from the amazing Nellie McKay over in the Poconos, the jazz pianist and singer (sometimes with ukulele) who is so phenomenally gifted and witty onstage. She was supposed to have been on the cruise that got cancelled March 11. I got a chance to tell her how amazing she is. Life is idyllic now that it’s warming up and the mockingbirds are nesting in the vines. At one time, that would’ve been tinged with dread that some tragedy was on the way but now I am better able to accept the idyllic. It helps to ration one’s news intake. I get up in the morning and instead of poring over the Times and the Post, I compose this little missive. Yesterday I invented a whole passage of my novel in which I reminisce about knowing F.S. Fitzgerald in Minneapolis in the late Sixties, a little digression that I feel sort of proud of and even read over the phone to a friend who called. I never do that sort of thing but there I was, doing it. That’s the sort of day it was. And now I can’t wait to get back to work. Sorry to be so brief. More tomorrow.
