For a while there, Gardner Dozois was hot to get me to join Facebook. "I don't really know much about Facebook," I said. "What good does posting on it do?"
"No good at all," he replied cheerily.
"Well, what kind of stuff do people post on it?"
"Mostly, what they had for breakfast."
"You make it sound awfully tempting," I told him. "But I think I'll give it a pass."
Above: My breakfast. Slices of heirloom tomato drizzled with olive oil and a touch of balsamic vinegar, then sprinkled with chopped basil and a pinch of salt. Cream cheese may well have been involved. Sometimes summer can be very good indeed.
