Five word review of Joshua Bell's recital this afternoon: The word virtuoso seems insufficient. (There were some moments when I thought he might go flying up off the stage. Seriously.)

Thanks, Collin!

Emily Lloyd said...

Wow, HUGE congrats! And man, who wouldn't love a poem with the first line, "She downloads the picture of the alligator"...

I love your poem in BOR! I bet by the time you read this message, your issue is in your mailbox!

Anne said...

Emily, Karen - thanks!

The alligator picture was a true story -- some years ago I sat there watching while my boss looked at this gross picture of an alligator with a guy's leg or arm or something being pulled out of it. Ewwwww!

Karen - if the roads aren't too bad when I go home from work tonight, I'll stop by the post office and check. Hopefully it will be there! :)
