Here it is.
I enjoyed it and you will love it.
MomInside was this neatly folded full page newspaper article from the Los Angeles Times.
When I spoke to my mom on the phone she told me that she also loved the photo of Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg. I agreed, it is such a great photo. It reminded me of the last time I saw Ferlinghetti. I was working at UC Santa Cruz in the late 1990s and was walking into the campus library when I saw an older man with someone walking out. When we walked past each other, I noticed that the older man looked very familiar to me. I thought he reminded me so much of Ferlinghetti, I knew I had to turn around and run back to ask him, so I did. I said, "Are you Lawrence Ferlinghetti?" He smiled and said, "Yes, I am." I said, "I met you years and years ago at the Kerouac Conference in Boulder, Co. I was the volunteer co-ordinator." His eyes twinkled and he replied, "Oh that was a time, that was quite a time, wasn't it?" Yes, it was.
I told my mom the story. She loved it. I have to say that the best part of getting this card and article in the mail is what it means to me to know that my mom sent it. My mom is going to be 90 years old on September 25, and she still reads the newspaper everyday. She read this book review and thought, Robin needs to see this. My gratitude and love know no bounds.
