Steve and I shared a wonderful celebratory lunch at Angelino's in Sausalito. It was fun to wander among the tourists and view my native land as foreign.
I began reading Kenneth Koch's book Wishes, Lies, and Dreams, Teaching Children to Write Poetry. Though it seems to be about teaching poetry writing to children, it is a book on the beauty, joy, and enthusiasm of the human spirit. I recommend it. After all, we all our children, just living and tilting at different degrees like leaves in the breeze.
