Waking up early on a Sunday morning: sunny and cool and delicious and so much pollen in the air I want to claw my skin off. Life balances itself out.
I must start out this blog post by admitting a thing that might make me either very popular here in Cincinnati, or, possibly, unpopular: we have electrical power at our house. Ever since Monday’s infamous “deluge” by the remnants of hurricane Ike, with huge windstorms and much power outage, the most common question around here is “Do you have power?” We came home, slowly but surely, yesterday, to find out that we did have power […]
Today is Sunday. I must remember that! Why did it feel like Saturday this morning?
Much as I have grown to love and revere BBEdit as both a program and way of life, and have become an actual card-carrying member of its license holders, I still go to TextMate for my blogly-writing needs.

I’ve spent the rest of the day in sedentary fashion, and […]
We had dinner last night with some of our friends here in Boulder, at a lovely restaurant called Sunflower. It’s an organic food restaurant which is helping me to dispel my 1970’s notions of organic food as brown, strangely seasoned, and gritty. My tuna Niçoise was excellent, with a lovely tarragon dressing. If you’ve noticed how seldom I write about food, you know this had to be exceptional. Now I get to head off to […]
