In case you can't read it:
To Dear Patrick - in partial fulfillment of the "first wild promise of all the mystery and the beauty in the world".
I like that it was written exactly 35 years ago - in May. But most of all, I love that it quotes the same part of the Great Gatsby that I quoted on this blog, just a few months ago. It's Fitzgerald's beautiful description of the Queensboro Bridge...
This kind of serendipity seems to be haunting me at the moment, in a good way.
I'm intrigued as to why this person decided to tie those two things together - Yeats and Gatsby?
I really should've bought the book, but decided $10 was a bit steep.
And I'm now considering becoming an inscription collector. For all the things to be considered crazy for collecting, I reckon it's a good one.
