As we realized last night, yesterday was Gabriel García Márquez's 79th birthday. I suppose last night's was only a warm-up for the barn-raiser next March 6th. The food was especially delicious last night, with fried plantains & a tofu-yellow-curry-coconut-milk thing. Selections from his literature were also read out loud to an appreciative audience.

And wept at our wintry Door:
Look! look! behold! Gwendolen
Is become a Clod of Clay!
Merlin is a Worm of the Valley!
