But Before I Go...

...a fuzzy phone picture I just received from Marianne! This was taken at the SFPL reading on Sunday. From left to right: bella poeta Barbara Jane, writer Steven Kahn, enchanting Marianne, and yours truly.

V--

I had to-- practically-- read the entire manual of my new Moto cell phone before I could figure out how to send it :-)

Isn't technology amazing, though? From my cell phone to your e-mail. I'm all agog over the wonders of my new phone (which, yeah, takes fuzzy pictures--!)

Hahaha! I almost didn't open the e-mail because there was no indication of who it came from!

Anyways, I sharpened it up in iPhoto as best I could before posting, but it still retains its charming "phone photo" quality...

those mall photographers deliberately make the pictures fuzzy or what they call "soft". Blurs out any imperfections, gives everyone fabulous skin.

No kidding, there was no identification of who sent it? Scary. Glad you opened it anyway. Otherwise, my morning's work (ha ha ha) would have gone for naught--!! (I always wanted to use that expression "for naught"...)

But gura, our skin really looks like this. Hahahahahahaha!

M, I remembered you were going to try and send it, and it did have the same sort of gobbledygook that my husband's phone uses when he send me an e-mail or picture, so I went ahead and took a risk. I live so dangerously.

I lost my cell phone! The one with all the pictures from the SFPL reading! This is now the only memento I have of that stellar moment (sob, sob!)
