the best party.

Standard

how to know when the party’s over.

you haven’t really been to a party

until you’ve been to a kindergarten party

they mean business.

“school should be the best party in town”

until they wake.

Standard

’twas new year’s eve at the lake house

and two of our

fellow celebratory foot soldiers

and their loyal dog were down 

though they made a miraculous comeback 

returning to the fray for the midnight hour

and it was something to behold.

“forgive me if I sleep until I wake up. “

-charles olson

 

summer christmas.

Standard

is it one of the hottest days of summer?

is it time for our annual

christmas in july/august celebration?

absolutely.

with long-time friends

turkey dinner

wine

christmas cookies

 stories

and 

odds and ends re-gifts to each other

that we’re highly likely

to re-gift to someone else at a later date

no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.

‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”

it has been said that a scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen edinburgh; and I think that I may say that an american has not seen the united states until he has seen mardi-gras in new orleans.
