A Good Hello,
What a long strange trip it’s been since the writing of my first blog post, some thirty-five years ago. Smudgy typewritten pages taped together to float about the neighborhood gathering comments. Sheets pasted end to end of commentary attached to the Head like a Chinese dragon came back to me.
This is the machine I used.
So many things have happened that I didn’t expect ever would. Mainly nothing, only the unsuspected unexpecteds have occurred to jar me awake from a luscious sleep.
I became a grandmother.
I went intergarlictic.
I became a queen.
What a shock. Why, the whole thing is absurd. I think I feel a dramatic scene coming on. Yes. Yes. I feel it.
Can you feel it too?
A thirty-fiver (35′r) is a lot of years and money and booze.
(forget that thing about the booze- I’m trying to be Raymonda Chandler right here)
The liquor was cheap and so were the men. I don’t know, were they? Nobody’s that cheap except my father.
(forget the thing about the men)
It’s time to R.S.V.P.
and find out what you mean to me.
