In the Greenmarket on Saturday I bumped into my friend who I hadn't seen in a while. "How is life? How's catering?" he asked. Life is good -- that part is easy. As for catering, I was familiar with that assumption of severe dichotomy (great life, horrible work). "Busy!" I affirmed -- the expected response. And then I added, "Kind."
If you ever want to put your significant other in the mood for love, try playing any tune on Joe Alterman's new CD, particularly one where Joe and his mentor Houston Person jam and groove.
