Kenny Reads, Leaves

Sufian Abas took a very serious portrait of Kenny. He looks like he has a flame of enlightenment over his head like a bodhisattva. Why did I post this pic? It is good to have different viewpoints of everyone, which is why Sufian's photos are so extremely good. Kenny was describing the "I" in his book in the morning, just waking up:
"I see my face as black and white and see no shades of grey." - in Broken Mornings
So since I missed the last Readings, Kenny promised me he would get out Broken Mornings and give me my own private reading when I visited. Lucky me, I thought, but expected him to be kidding. But no, the man remembered his promise. He delivered unto me my own personal read of "Leaves" over the cake I might have mentioned once or twice. Kenny is very good at reading, no wonder ladies get rapt. The paparazzi were too busy listening, we didn't get any photos. It wasn't that kind of evening anyway. He read "Smell" which Spiffy chose and "Settling In" which Lyrical Lemongrass requested. So we all got one. It was fair and square. Kenny said that he felt he had moved on from these stories but liked them again now he heard them aloud. So all was good.

We even got a drawing demonstration on a napkin - hey, he can draw too - look forward to seeing some illustrations when Dark City 2 comes out. We all reluctantly stood up to leave and we dropped Spiffy off at the train and Kenny at his new place, clutching a Just Heavenly cake, I wonder if he ate it or just fell asleep on the spot!

Lyrical Lemongrass and I went off to find the perfect sashimi...we did very well. She blogs about Umai-ya. Mmm, what a lovely crowning evening. Thank you for looking after me so well. I will take this day and store it in my jewel box.

Never had a personal reading before. That was great. The story that you told us about Mr G is like a fairy tale. You should write about it someday. That day with all of you was one of my perfect days.

Maybe my daughter will have to write about it! She's a great little writer. Or when I am 80 I'll publish a racy novel like the author of The Camomile Lawn.

Heyy...i agree with LL, that day was one of the best ones. And Kenny's stories do sound good read out loud..or maybe it's the way he reads them. Heheh...;o)

oh, how i wish my story will be like yours and Mr. G..someday, perhaps..

Ahh... I'm really touched at this. Speechless. Wordless. Wonderful write-up of that day. *smiles*

Kenny, I deem it a great compliment for you to be momentarily speechless *grins* and everyone there agrees it was a correct description of your reading. Glad you came by!

Grace, haha maybe meeting mr G was a good story but it's what we make of it after that counts - no such thing as happily ever after in the sunset!*grins* but I surely wish happiness for everybody too.

yea..i do agree it's the 'after' that counts the most. but getting that story starting is also something hard to find..heheh.. ;o)
