    I love Mac’s! I gave a reading there back when I had some small indie chapbook printed in B+W called Beware the Glass Rabbit. Fun place. Good crowd. One of the places in Cleveland I still miss. Can’t make it to that reading though…but-

    Since I live in Erie, I should be able to make it to the Erie Books reading.

    I was in the area! And I’d have made you stay at my house. But I’m not anymore and it isn’t my house anyway. But I wish I could be there. (Except for the fact I’m really happy to be away from Cleveland in the winter.)

    Paul-yes, do drop by!

    Maureen-yeah, the timing is off juuust a little bit with your move. But hopefully one day we can visit you in Austin! It was so good to see you and Bob down there. One of the absolute highlights of the trip.
