Dom got in at about the expected time yesterday and met me at the Kasbah restaurant for some Moroccan. He'd not had it before and was pleased with our result. We talked for quite a while about NYC and my upcoming short visit in June. He suggested a lot of places to see, but I will have only a limited time for seeing things, and several people to see as well. I've got lots of good ideas now, though, so this is a plus.

When we got back to my place, [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor came over for a couple of hours to catch up with him. I'd been battling a migraine all day, so about 12:30 she left and we both headed for our respective beds. I think I heard him leave about 10:30 this morning. When I got up this afternoon it was pouring down rain in a way it usually doesn't around here. It's still coming down now, but not in nearly as vigorous a fashion.

I spent much of yesterday afternoon putting my various notes into a doc file -- I'm at four pages and not done yet. I've also got a bit more material to troll through for further information, so I will be getting to that in a little while.

I read a pretty good article today on how poetry is Not Dead Yet thank you very much, by an essayist who had apparently recently written one of those "is poetry dead, yes" essays you see so many of. He apparently got swamped with comments from poets and was suitably impressed. It's an amusing essay and worth the five minutes or so it will take you to get through it.

At the VA on Thursday, I ended up having a rant about one of the posters on their wall, which I will most likely write about when I have formulated my thoughts on it a little more. I know I was frustrated and angry about it, and said as much to one of the chaplain interns who works with our group. Anyway, more on that later, when I'm a little more together about it.
