AS I WAS being seated at dinner tonight, I saw my former writing group buddy L. across the room, beaming at me, waving me over. I went to say hi, and she and her party insisted I join them. Insisted! And even after I pointed out Id brought a book to read. Turned out its L.s birthday, and there was room at the table for one more. So I stayed.

Had a really nice time. Great people, all of whom are in higher ed. We talked about aging relatives, death, writing.

Dinner: wonton soup, calamari, edamame and sushi rolls.
