Hinterlands 1

Sitting here doing some rather grim math. And I see that in the last twenty-nine days, all of August, I've left the House only four times. On the the second, the tenth, the sixteenth, and the twenty-fourth. I'm not sure I should actually count the twenty-fourth, given that was a doctor's appointment. Even by my standards, looking back and realizing that I've let things get this bad is more than a little disturbing. We'd planned to leave the House today...except I was sick last night, and...

I didn't find THE END of "Fairy Tale of the Maritime" yesterday. I wrote less than eight hundred words, was probably working on the final paragraph, and began to have serious doubts about how I was wrapping it up. So, I stopped, hoping I'd come back today with a clearer understanding of what's going on. But no such clearer understanding has presented itself to me. But I've got to finish it, either today or tomorrow, because I have to get Sirenia Digest #57 out.

Maybe if Spooky took you out for a nice drive, what you need will come to you. You could take a notepad and write it down as you ride. Sometimes you have to turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.

Hm ... and on the second, tenth, sixteenth and twenty-fourth respectively, something horrible happened somewhere in the world.

Coincidence?

Is there ever a day when something horrible doesn't happen in the world?

Yes. It was three billion years ago on a Thursday. Amino acids joined together and celebrated the first Christmas.

I'd say that might have been the most horrible day of all.

Okay ... um ... then some of the amino acids turned into stuff and evolved into trolls and they stole Christmas from a bunch of orphans. And there were dinosaurs.

I don't think it's going in the wrong direction.
