...a beautiful city, even more beautiful in the rain. We spent the weekend there and it rained the whole time. It was wonderful. On Saturday night we went to a fantastic thesis celebration. There we met some great people. I'm sure I ate my weight in cake. The cheesecake was unbelievable. It was by far the best cheesecake I've ever inhaled. I thought the celebration would be the perfect time to return the book I'd borrowed from her way back when. I even put it in a gift bag.
After that we zipped over to the Brick Books and JackPine Press co-launch. It was a full house. I now own When Earth Leaps Up by Anne Szumigalski and the marvelous new chapbooks by Don Domanski and Holly Luhning. On the way home the next day, I read Don Domanski's chapbook aloud. Then I read it again. And again.
