It’s nearly 90 degrees here in North Massapequa today, but we’ve got shade trees and a breeze coming in off the ocean … and lots of poets descending tomorrow for a big Barbecue! It’s time to crack out the wine and beer and fight for your hammock, as Famous Amis does above in his Jersey backyard. Enjoy the new summer, poets and peeps! xo, Amy and Ana
p.s. Did I mention I’ll be here tonight?
