Awesome Gift. Our wonderful friend Don, who is a deeply lovely human being, and funny and smart and successful, though much too hard on himself, came for dinner the other night. He brought a delightful friend. He also brought gifts. The gifts were unexpected and unnecessary, but Oh, so delicious. Upon me, he bestowed one of the most thoughtful gifts ever: mugs emblazoned with the covers of some of my books!!! How utterly enchanting. And happy me.
