Giftless in Richmond

Richmond is nothing like it seemed all the times I drove past it on 95. It's both beautiful and charming.

You are a bundle of energy always on the go.

That's what was in the fortune cookie I just ate. I also just had a banana. Am I raiding the mini-bar in my hotel room? No, I am not. I am raiding the goodie bag Caroline, the moderator of tomorrow's blogging panel, gave me this evening after she had me (and a number of other writers and friends) over her lovely home for dinner. What did I bring I her? Absolutely nothing. I'm a total ass. Did I mention Caroline picked me up from my hotel?

Patty Smith and Nathan Long drove me back to my hotel. I didn't have any gifts for them either.

Later in the evening I met up with Ron for drinks at the super swank Jefferson. I joined him and Dr. Rosalind Miles, historian Robin Cross and David L. Robbins. Ron bought me a drink. I bought him nothing.

s'okay- just because it's Virginia doens't mean you have to gift everybody- I enjoyed meeting you in person and discussing the state of poetry (or something like that).

The gift was your presence, which was what we wanted most. Come see us again in the River City!
