After a year of red, I gave Donna a white rose; stayed in bed Saturday.

Donna was actually thinking of our going to the play shown in the enclosure below. She is in fact a writer and wanted to write during college.

 I can't really explain that one day I met Gloucester poet Vincent Ferrini and the next I came to Boston to study Billy Barnum, but they were comrades- but I did finally write a title for a poem this afternoon, "The Inclines of Suspension". I was looking at a subway bridge that was flat and then the side of a buliding nearby featured a semi-circled room, and I thought, due to how stress plays out architecturally, shouldn't  the roof be the semi-cirlcle? Art is usually abstract geometry, which leads to science I really don't try to study.

We still could be going to the play- apparently we missed the fireworks in Gloucester Harbor this weekend. Last year were a eek too early for Liv Ullmann; this year we are a week to early for Judy Collins.

About the rose: I was listening to Music for Human Beings on M. I. T. radio friday night and had skipped giving her a rose because we are readying for our romantic weekend. My message was- please just keep the weekend romantic. Then I thought, if I make it a white rose there will be an element of seriousness to it. She said, "I love it" After all is said and done, we had what is almost breakfast in bed, postponing the romantic friday into Saturday afternoon.

Please see Enclosure.
