    To my sorrow – and I should have know better – I forgot to raise a glass to Fitz on the day. My wife and I and a few close friends will now have to make up for it on May 18, Omar’s 967th birthday (for the precise claim, see my Omar Khayyam: Poet, Rebel, Astronomer, of 2007, a paperback edition of which should be coming out in the autumn). Before that, my wife and I hope to be at Boulge church on Sunday May 3rd, 3pm, to hear the Rt. Rev. Charles Mugleston read Fitz’s Rubaiyat. In the meantime, greetings to Sandra and Bill for keeping this website going. I’ll be getting in touch with them shortly. I hope they’ll also be at the Boulge gathering.
