Yesterday was both Edward Gorey and Anaïs Nin's birthdays, and I feel bad for not having said so...yesterday.

It's sunny here. Currently, it's an unseasonable 52˚F, with only one degree Fahrenheit of windchill.

No writing yesterday, because I had an appointment with my psychiatrist. I'm losing most of this week, which I could not afford to lose. Today, I have to at least settle on an idea.

And Kathryn and I just started screaming at each other, so...I take that as the cue to end thus entry. Later.

Resistance, Peace, and Compassion,
Aunt Beast
