  1. Wonderful blog, Sally. All best to you in 2012.
    And if anyone reading this is thinking about going
    to Lisbon, just go. You won’t regret it.

  2. Riding the #60 VTA bus to
    Santa Cara’s Senior Center
    steadying my walker-sitter
    distracts me from the poems
    on the posters above me. It’s
    worth the buck nonetheless.
    This is my poem about it all.

    – Bill Costley, Santa Clara
