Re: Birthday Reading & Greetings
Wow! Deeply moved by the vast number of birthday greetings that reached me via email, phone, Face-book, Messenger, etc. Many thanks, mercis, shukrans & Danke Schöns to you all, family, friends & acquaintances. Nicole & our sons, Joe & Miles, had set up an excellent celebratory occasion with the help of Jeanine Bardo at the latter’s Stand4 Gallery here in BayRidge. A shoutout also to the local bookshop, the Bookmark Shop, & its owner Christine, who brought a pile of my new books to sign. Nicole recorded the reading (see below) — many thanks to her & to my publisher, Rainer Hanshe of Contra Mundum Press for his superb introduction — after which there was Prosecco & red wine (for them that drink) & food for all.
