Born in the year of the Rat and on the same day (August 2) as me, James also happens to be an entity mate.  Though I never met him, Merlin did.  As we drove from actor, Joe Morton’s Upper West Side tiny apartment from his annual Halloween pumpkin kill in 1982 – we were en route to Times Square and Frederick Jones’s where we would first meet, had also met Joe Morton for the first time that night – Merlin spoke lovingly of James Baldwin whom he had met the year prior through a Black American writer friend of Frederick’s whom I never met as he had died in a car crash in July 1982.  James ever will remain one of my favourite writers.  Of course, it goes without saying that whilst he was alive, I dreamt often of James thanks to our being entity mates.

Happy birthday entity mate.  James’s Michael Overleaves to follow:
