This past weekend, Ron, our new puppy, and I took a trip to New Jersey to see an old friend, Johanna Dominguez. We met Johanna five years ago at the scene of some of Ron’s graduate work, Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York during the Summer Writers’ Conference. Ron use to teach one-on-one poetry conferences during the day. I would visit every night for the evening poetry and fiction readings and have dinner and drinks with his fellow literature friends, who soon became my friends.
Those summer evenings are missed, but we’re still in touch with some of the friends we made all those years ago. Johanna Dominguez is one of them. A brilliant poet and outstanding equestrian, Johanna invited us to her New Jersey home for an incredible cookout this past weekend.
