KHftCEA 1998-04.2 April
Last night going for my writeable cd-rom- realized for the first time in a while how close I was to the HoJo's where 222nd Jazz stayed in 1991. (and how close I'll be to it at the Big Yellow House.) Looked at where the bus pulled up, the dining room we ate brunch at. Thought of looking into the humid small poolroom, racing through the stairwells, looking at our reflection (and of Veronika's odd red shirt with the doo-dads attached) in the window at the end of the hall. Veronika was my first big love, and 'you never forget your first.'
