The weathermen are saying that it'll be 72˚F on Wednesday. We'll be heading to the shore to wipe the winter off our faces. Right now, it's 44˚F and sunny, which is an improvement over the weekend, at least.

Yesterday was mostly a day off. This afternoon we have to ferry boxes (mostly contributor's copies) to our storage unit in Pawtucket. Whee. I need to sit down and get started on "Objects in the Mirror," but that's not gong to happen until Thursday. Yesterday, I read (from JVP), "A late Eocene snake fauna from the Fayum Depression, Egypt." The new episode of Vinyl was superb.

Tomorrow I have to be at a psychiatrist appointment.

My grateful thanks to everyone who's donated to the Patreon so far. Yesterday, we reached out initial $1,000 goal and entered the $1,500 stretch goal. I cannot even begin to tell you what a relief your patronage is to me.

This morning, I didn't really get to sleep until sunrise, sometime around 7 ayem. I dreamt of Ireland and vast tracks of deep freshwater, pills and poisonous vines and very earnest children.

I should have titled yesterday's blog entry, "Where Do You Get Your Ideas? Answered!"

I have photos from yesterday, the day summed up in macro photography, offered without comment:

Like the naked leads the blind,
I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind.
Sucker love, I always find
Someone to bruise and leave behind.

All alone in space and time,
There's nothing here, but what's here's mine.
Something borrowed, something blue,
Every me and every you,
Every me and every you.
~ Placebo
