The Arts Council Dinner
I've lived in this town for somewhat more than thirty years and it was odd to be doing a reading (however brief) in front of a group of people who I either did not know at all or who I once knew in a radically different life––and as a far different person––twenty years or-so ago.
Not unpleasant, mind you. Just odd.
It's not as if I went away, either; I just stopped talking to people in 1987, and I haven't exactly been on anyone's party list since.
I need to get out more.
