I also want to thank the students from my poetry class who came to the event, each of whom received "A's" for the evening.
I am very grateful to Dan Gerber for a variety of reasons, not least the fact that had I never met him, I don't think I would have become a poet and writer. Dan set me on a path toward a different (and much happier) life.
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
On Saturday morning, I went to the memorial service at Christ Community Church for Charlie Misner: bon vivant, great spirit, and long-time fixture at the Bookman in Grand Haven. It was a wonderful, touching service. My heart goes out to Jill and Amy and the good people at the Bookman. We will mourn the loss of Charlie for a long time.
Yesterday I went out and threshed the grass for (no matter what happens) the last time this season. Thank God for October, though in a week or two, expect me to be bitching about all the fallen leaves.
And the Detroit Lions beat the Chicago Bears, 37-27. Sorry, Gary.
