Thanks BigAl, Jay and KathyK!
I've enjoyed the ride -- as much as I felt I had to bail for a while and get my priorities back in line.
Sort of a curtain call, but I want to publicly recognize a number of great folk with whom -- politics and religion notwithstanding -- I would enjoy a great meal and a piano party:
Kudos especially to JBryan, who always had the zingiest one liners. (And Improv -- you are tops in my book too -- thanks for all the laughs!)
Kenny, who is a truly sensitive soul.
Griff and Jolly and Dwain -- you're the kind of guys I want next to me in the trenches. -- U2 KB!
Jeffboy-- who doesn't really get the Catholic thing because he doesn't buy the whole notion of spirituality -- I suspect that someday you'll find that the great gifts of love in your life are more than just mechanical processes and have meaning far beyond your own little universe of discourse
. If I'm ever back in NY, I'd enjoy the MOMA with you!
A lot of you guys and dolls are gems -- Nina, Plays, TomK (and your Lenten bi-locations), all the Team Dudes, CindySphinx, Apple (meum malum--the KC project died on me, but I hope the dinner invitation is always open!), Markjpcs, Ren, Quidam, PianoJerome, 89th, Jodi (who is perhaps the sweetest), MusicMagellan, NAK, Fizzy, JustMe...
Thank you for enriching my life.
