The time has come. Goodbye Ypsilanti, hello again Ann Arbor.
Tomorrow is the official day! Dream Baby is coming back to town!
Moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan from Massachusetts, became very ill, rupture of a cranial aneurysm , 2011, survived, against all expectations, and my life was forver changed for the better, improved I mean, divorced after 40 years of marrage, a change I really needed, having married as a teenager who knew nothing, not really; I thought I knew a few thngs, but I really didn’t.
Mostly, although I was married for such a long time, wedding in 1973, turns out that I knew nothing about love, not really. But a friend of mine (Thomas Robert Higgginson) did, and we got together for the best weekend of my life, became the basis of a romance novel, I was finally able to write, my favorite book of all my thirteen books:
New Kiss Horizon

Presently working on a book about my father; a book I have needed to write for many years. He and my son (I was finally able to have) are the people most like me in the world. My father was the most soft-hearted man –and I am soft-hearted too. My son may be soft-hearted also, but life itself and the world not fully hospitable to such nature has tried to crush this, has tried to hammer it out of us, but my heart, agaist all reason, defiant in its softness had not curled up and died, the ventricles useless, chambers unvisited and exploited.
This too is legacy.
A softer legacy to be sure. I wish he had lived to know any of this for himself.
This Heart will survive.
Of course I like memories, but I prefer things of substance, the physics of what can held in my hands, hot or cold, even if it burns, I want the marks of living well, of knowing these feelings; there is a cost of knowledge, and for those who maintain the story of origins involving Adam and Eve, the cost of knowledge was the loss of paradise, but I suggest that the knowledge gained perhaps was worth that loss; for they gained a physicality that is very much enjoyed around the world, among all species the propagate –he way it’s done: interaction and connection of bodies:
the actual paradise of pleasure.
