Hudson—>New York

On Saturday morning in Hudson, we buried Maggie between two trees at the cemetery she liked walking her dog in. Sondra Loring, owner of Sadhana yoga studio said some words. It was snowing. We put rose petals on her casket. Afterwards, we went to Club Helsinki for the memorial.

Then I had to get out of Hudson, so Matt, Cynthia, and I drove into New York City.

On Monday night I read at The Strand Bookstore for The Goodbye To All That anthology. I was honored to read with Dani Shapio and Emily Gould. Instead of reading my own essay, Sari Botton (editor of GTAT) had me read Maggie’s essay: Think Of This As  Window.
