A Personal Note
Before the wine, I was a determined bully--rearranging the furniture to create aisles, getting four stacked extra tables moved out to the hall, soliciting a replacement cable for the microphone, and generally stirring the soup to a rolling boil.  Thanks to Frank for his generous complicity.

After the wine, I shifted into a slightly lopsided being recalibrating toward center.  I had meant to snap photos of each of the ten readers, but was captured by their words.   Apologies to  the talented Judith Kalina, Diane Keller, Lori Kent, Fran Kokov and Glen Jeffers.  Zoe Eiffel prefers to be exempt from photos.
Thanks to my  friend Wendy Daly who used my camera to shoot photos I appear in, and to Chipollte for the lovely food.
