Life is a nightclub


This couple reminds me of my lovely parents who held the best parties in Edmonton. Jazz, bright lights, booze, laughter, affable men smiling and patting my head, women kneeling to look me in the eyes. Love, not the carnal but the divine, to quote Elmer Gantry, was in the air: the smell of perfume, the rustling of dresses, the house jam-packed. To be invited to Faye and Morrie's annual party was to score a big opportunity for fun out loud. The Rex Jazz & Blues Club takes me back to those years when, Saturday afternoons, seeing the fridge crammed tight with food and mixers I'd shout "Party! Party! Party!" and get the answer "Not for you! You'll be in bed!" ("That's why you think" I'd silently reply. And all night one or the other parent would take turns chasing up the stairs, threatening us with punishments they were too happy to inflict).

The other day was the 47th year of my mother's passing. Since I don't do synagogue and that kind of thing, this will have to burn as her candle.
