Quote of the day: “Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain.”  —  Mark Twain (and happy birthday, sir.)

Daily gratitudes:
That it’s still nice here so far from the sea
That the cat missed me very much
That the cat furthermore did not go emo on me
Smiles
That the llamas are growing shaggy in preparation for the coming cold
