I had a post half-written for you today, but gremlins in the wires conspired against it: first problems with my blogging platform and just when it was up and running again, the power went out across our village, and stayed out for a good long time. At which point I gave up on tech altogether, threw my notebooks into a bag, and headed for the woods with Tilly.
"What keeps you going," writes Barbara Kingsolver, "isn't some fine destination but just the road you're on, and the fact that you know how to drive. You keep your eyes open, you see this damned-to-hell world you got born into, and you ask yourself, 'What life can I live that will let me breathe in out and love somebody or something and not run off screaming into the woods?' "
Today I ran off into the woods, but tomorrow I'll be back. Goodnight, all.
