  1. Hi John,

    I really enjoyed the Monkeybiycle event at the KGB bar. It was a great crowd and lots of fun. I enjoyed your piece (I tried to catch the title ~ is it “Divine Wind Blows Across the Queensboro Bridge”?) ~ congratulations on the success of the reading series premiere.

  2. Thanks, Kathleen! I’m glad you enjoyed the night. I had a good time, too. And I’m very happy you enjoyed my story, remembering the title even, although the complete title is “A Divine Wind Blows Across the Queensboro Bridge”. You know, it’s one page of a much longer story, one that, in manuscript, is over twenty pages. I hope it sees the light of day some day.

  3. The noisy noise!

    I liked the piece as well, John.

    • Thanks, Michael! And for your reading pleasure, here’s a snippet:
      “…pressed by the noisy walls, with their chattering photos and blathering mementos, on each noisy floor, the noisy inside and the noisy outside, the noisy noisiness of the noise.”
