It was simply perfect Summer weather for our first
Edna and Dorothy Duet
(rescheduled from last weeks miss)
Madison Square Park
Men Working Out
Private Yoga Session
Found a spacious enough place to settle under one of the older trees in a shady part of lawn. First there was a bit of talk about our two lives to date. then reading commenced, alternating between us:
I Read Dorothy Parker's "Rhyme Against Living",
"Wisdom", "Afternoon", "A dream Lies Dead",
"For A Lady Who Must Write Verse", and "But Not Forgotten".
She read Edna St. Vincent Millay's "Sonnet XLVII",
"Sonnet XL", and several other sonnets that were unnumbered.
About three quarters through our time together (her lunch hour), my friend Lorelie , a sketch artist and caricaturist, joined us and did a quick sketch.
It was lovely, and we will do it again.
