“What do sad people have in common? / It seems they have all built a shrine to the past, / And often they go there and do a strange wail and worship. / What is the beginning of happiness? / It is to stop / being so religious / Like / That.” ~ Hafiz
What an interesting day. The morning was filled with lots of little lose ends all tied up by lunchtime. The afternoon brought a fire alarm brought on by Bobcat exhaust sucked into the building. Who knew! Over the years I’ve done a lot of socializing during these open-air meetings. You learn a lot about people, like who pays attention to the camera, who gets the bunny ears, or who strikes a pose. And then there’s Gordon Hogg’s ties. This one he claims to be Isabella Rossallini or Ingrid Bergman. I think it’s his wife, Becky Ryder. Whatever the case, I’m glad I got to see him before he flies the friendly skies tomorrow for Singapore. I hope he remembers that I love post cards.
