The fete grows larger

Steve and Mark will be coming all the way from St. Louis to be in Paris the same week! I am so very thrilled for Steve who has loved the Phoenix Foundation for so very long, but has not seen them live.

I'll never forget how encouraging and helpful he was when I first pitched to the band to come to Bishop in 2006/2007.

I'm writing the same "Mommy has no intention of dying, but in case she does" letter I always write Babbo when I leave home for more than a day. It is the superstitious Chinese mother in me. Somehow, all these weird mortal concerns fall away once the letter is written and my ass is on that plane.
