Still using rainbow plates and napkins from my reading. Some audience and cast members gave me super comments after, while eating the sushi and sandwiches I served. Grateful for ‘peeps’ who show up with ongoing support.
And for the musicians who play string instruments at the pier. Did I hear a waltz last week on my Hudson River walk? Yes, by Strauss. I waltzed. The backdrop: New Jersey, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
Proud of my students who were at my Hunter Conference memoir panel and told me of the writing they’ve been getting published.
Proud I graduated from NYU 50 years ago, that Langone is giving NYU medical students full-tuition scholarships, and Langone’s float on Sunday was spectacular.
Proud I’ve been watching the Parade since 1970, live a stone’s throw away, and just saw the biggest, most thrilling one yet.
