Be sure to check out the Valentine’s issue of the Newport Mercury, free at news stands around town. I wrote an article about surviving the day single, which you can also view on their e-copy, page 10, or transcribed here. And to elaborate on a particular cultural reference within, this is what I mean by dancing like Zorba the Greek.
I’ve written for the Mercury before. Check out my article about the economic situation in Greece and its effect on island artisans.
As it turns out, however, none of my Valentine’s Day plans are going to take place and my blog may be a bit slow for a while. This weekend, I had to go to the hospital because of complications that arose from a chest cold that I’ve been toting about for two weeks. Looks like I’ll be couch bound for at least another week.
