Eat, Drink, Meg, Gina

Lunch at Mocca in Maiden Lane. Meg's visiting from New York where she teaches Writing and Visual Rhetoric at Colgate University. I had to ask what Visual Rhetoric meant.

We admire Gina's jewelry and she says, "Meg, you, if anyone, will know about this lady on my earrings. The guy at the Greek market told me it was Athena, but actually it's Arethusa. She is the nymph of Siracuse. Have you heard of her?"

Meg rustles in her backpack and holds up this journal, along with Gina's earring. She just happens to be reading a publication called Arethusa. It's really too much.
