Eastside Road, Healdsburg, December 31, 2008LIGHT SUPPER: pork loin, succotash, green salad. Pumpkin pie.
Brussels sprouts on the side, sautéed; green salad of course. Zabaglione.
I rise to celebrate LeBaron, John,He's that kind of guy, apparently imperturbable, and a marvelous photographer, did I mention?
A gentle, quiet man, when all is said
And done; polite and calm, reserved, well-bred,
With much to offer, now he’s getting on.
He has so much to tell us! And I read
His strange discursive stories eagerly,
Though waiting for the next with a degree
Of envy and impatience he won’t heed.
He keeps his own sweet pace. I won’t say slow:
He’s calm; methodical. Some years ago
Eye surgery required he keep his head
Lowered a month. I asked how that would go.
Photographers like to look forward. Oh,
There’s lots of cans of nails to sort, he said.
