holding space


Some of the Happiness troupe met at Brier Books for Silas House’s reading of his latest novel, Southernmost. There were so many people that the event was moved outside. Because a few of us have issues with direct sun for long(ish) periods, we opted out of the reading, and instead went to dinner where we proceeded to spend two glorious hours clucking like the hens we are. The food was good, too. Annie was on a mission to photograph Silas with Limbourghini while we were still at the bookstore. Sadly, it was not to be. Way too many people demanding his time. Plan B was to photoshop him into the photo. But really, now that I think about it, I think they were holding a space for me. If I had a picture of myself standing up I would have photoshopped myself in. Since I don’t, you’ll just have to imagine that I did, and that’s almost as funny. Like so many times before, I had the best time with these women. We always have great talks and lots of laughter. They get me. Balm for my soul.

rider’s up


Don’t you feel happy when you look at this picture? I sure do. A couple of Saturdays ago I met Annie Bassoni downtown for brunch. Afterward, I was finally introduced to Limeborghini, her fabulous bicycle. If memory serves, she took up the University’s offer to trade in her parking pass for bucks toward a bike. And what a bike she got. Like Annie, it has the best, most fun personality. She posts about it all the time, all the fabulous downtown places it goes, all the people it meets. Limeborghini has taken on a life of its own. It’s a star, just like Annie. How can you not love this? This idea, this bike, this person. Nothing but love.
