I have actually been at my desk today for six hours straight, working, writing, with only a few internet excursions...one, to look at trips to Rapa Nui (Easter Island), a place I have always dreamed of going. Most people say, "you want to go WHERE?"  but finally I have a friend who says she'll go with me if we can both find the time, etc.  My own schedule is pretty self-defined because I am self-employed, but of course I have a ton of conferences and speaking engagements on my calendar.  And my partner-in-crime is a university professor so she has to work around that.  But I bet we can do it...sometime....if we put our minds to it.

Here is another comrade, this one my daughter. This snapshot was taken at her 50th birthday party in February, but it was just given to me. We look like the female versions of John Belushi and Dan Akroyd. She was born shortly before my 21st birthday (I had married at age 19) and was not an over-indulged child because her brother was born 12 months later, and then two more siblings in the ensuing two and a half years. Busy times!  But she was a fun and interesting child....and still has those qualities as an adult.

I think we look very cool here, as if we are up to mischief.

I agree about the fantasy affair - he would have been on my list - and also his presence in the world. He's had a number of pieces in the NYer over the past year so I wasn't aware he was ill. A huge loss.

Interestingly, i just recently discovered John Updike... I haven't fallen in love with all of his work yet, though i'm starting to enjoy his candid writing style;
his passing is a sad loss indeed
