I know. It's nearly been a week since my last post. Have done so much -- finding an apartment, trolling for furniture on Craigslist and in thrift stores, trying to find an allen wrench so I can assemble my bed, going to the LimmudLA Healing Havdalah, checking out Jewish authors at the Celebration of Jewish Books, and of course, writing lots for Idol Chatter -- that it's been near-impossible to get it all down. But posts are coming...
In the interim, allow me to announce that I'm planning an East Coast trip for December -- mostly so I can experience the cold, dank winter-ridden East Coast and then return to generous sunshine with a mild chill in the air (better take a sweater if you go out). But here's the real reason for my return:
"Sex and Relationships in the 21st Century with Zeek Magazine"
Thu, Dec 11, 2008, 7:00pm
Location: 92YTribeca, 200 Hudson Street
Venue: 92YTribeca Lecture Hall
Joshua Henkin (author of New York Times Notable Book of 2007, Matrimony), Dan Friedman (Associate Editor of Zeek and Arts and Culture editor at the Forward), and Esther D. Kustanowitz (blogger, My Urban Kvetch and JDaters Anonymous) offer a literary take on the themes of love, romance, and sexuality. Find out what writers have to say about the role of marriage in modern families and societies, and the ways that relationships have changed in recent history.
Both Josh and Dan are very smart and entertaining individuals. And they're both married (not to each other). So I have a sense I'll be the Lorax for single people again. It would be great to see my NY posse in attendance at this hip venue, and if enough of y'all want to, I could probably be convinced to go for drinks or sushi downtown somewhere. So tell your friends, and I hope to see you there!
And yes, I am available for other NY gigs, and will be traveling to the DC area as well as Miami on this journey, so book now...firstname.lastname@example.org.
