i am happy you are back writing Third Street - I missed reading your very personal blogs about your life - Loved you piece about Teen Spirit's all nighter - I do wonder what he was really doing in the park... but then, it is quite possible he was just swinging ona swing, watching the dogs frolic. Is their a pretty dogwalker around????????

I'm way ahead of you: I was tagged by Noorster with this meme a few weeks ago.

You seem to be turning into a real Paul Auster fan. Have you read "Timbuktoo"? Very good, very sad.
