Columbus, Ohio

November 5, 2009

This morning at 5:30 AM I ran past the Santa Maria, moored in the river that cuts through Columbus. There she was. This gorgeous replica. I wanted to climb on board and check it out, but what struck me the most is how bright and freshly painted she was. And this is what I felt about Columbus. It is so Nice there; I wanted to climb right on board. I had a wonderful time reading at the JCC. I loved talking to the very funny Doug Dangler for my interview on the local NPR station. The hotel was wide and bright and luxurious. I felt like I was on vacation. Melanie Butter, the JCC Book Fair coordinator, made me laugh and laugh with her stories about her son. And, she left me a treat back at the front desk. Rabbi Howard, who took me out to dinner was fascinating and warm and I told him my whole life story over falafel. All in all, I felt very lucky to be there. And grateful that Woman is giving me these opportunities to travel and meet such great people. And see new places. Ohio State is Really Amazing. I think it is bigger than the town I live in.

    What a wonderful path writing creates for us to travel to places we would not otherwise and meet with people and eat food and have a quiet moment in spaces we only imagined. It’s great to see that the road is not only imaginary but also tangible to the touch.

    Great to see the success of Woman Charlotte. I hope to catch one of your readings in town when you come back this way. Blessings, Enzo

    This sounds like the type of travel I enjoy, discovering and rediscovering. It makes you appreciate things all over again. If you happen to come to south Florida let me know I’d love to attend one of your readings.
