"There’s total depravity staring back at me There’s total depravity standing right in front of me."

Overcast at the moment. 58˚F. Humidity is 100%.

Yesterday gets an L on the calendar. Nothing much was accomplished. It was supposed to be a day off, but I couldn't find the nerve to leave the House. We'd planned to go to Beavertail, down on Conanicut Island. But the sky was too much for me.

I didn't work.

Late last night – well, early this morning – I sat down and glanced over the color page proofs for Houses Under the Sea: Mythos Tales. That was the nearest I came to work.

I didn't leave the House. Spooky went out, and she brought a photo back to me.
