goodbye to Lorenzo Thomas

goodbye to the darling man that was Lorenzo Thomas. I only met him once, but we talked for a while & for some unknown reason he expressed a real interest in seeing my work. it was this kind of generosity that struck me most.

last night when I heard the news I went to
Extraordinary Measures, (which he had signed) & read this "for Melissa, in the hope that our voices can ring as beautifully as the poets of ages past. with all best wishes, Lorenzo Thomas."
