My editor (in an e-mail), on receiving my latest PDF of the book I’m compositing, after I worked fourteen hour days all week to accommodate the opinions, suggestions and modifications of the various people involved with the publication of this book:
“Thanks, […], I like this version a lot.”
Last night, instead of working until 9:30, I sat on the couch and talked to my wife. It was delightful. Turns out she’s a pretty interesting person.
Then I went to sleep and had, at that time of day when Dante tells us dreams are prophetic, a horrible nightmare in which my wife left me.
c’ est la vie.
Thanks, dear reader, for stirring me to resume after my harried hiatus.
