5th stop: Cleveland

My camera battery died before the reading even started, but fortunately the one shot I got was of our magnificently generous and kind host, Anastasia Diamond-Ortiz.

  • It was John’s 29th birthday, so we embarrassed him by serving him a cake before his reading. There was also singing.
  • We should have asked the guy who performed before us to stick around for the singing. He probably could have serenaded John in several languages.
  • The crowd was small, but incredibly generous and with a high per capita cat count. Three of us stayed with Bill, the crazy cat lady (man) with four cats. We didn’t want to leave them, and almost couldn’t because of a 4th of July parade blocking not only our way to Anastasia’s house to pick up Celia, but our access to the road outta town.
