Maria’s Birthday

It’s my baby’s birthday today. I sang a fingerpickin’ version of happy birthday this morning. yesterday we took a bike ride down to piraeus. we rode around the harbor, which is wonderfully empty this time of year, made our way to a lighthouse where a fairly grizzled old guy was fishing for octopus. He would grill his catch, he told us, and eat it with some friends over ouzo.

As a direct result of all of this traipsing, many musical compositions were composed, most of which found their way to some sort of mechanical device capable of reproducing musical compositions. This was mostly for the good. He now lives in Athens, Greece, where he is content.
