My wife made a wonderful turkey chili, which is a real comfort. Last night, we watched the last x amount of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I remember seeing that movie just after I'd started college. It was such an thrill for me, then, that acquired sense that we are not alone. I still get that thrill when each new planet is discovered. Somehow I think that the search to understand what is "out there" is very important.
Today will be another day of rest. I'm eager to avoid having one of those drawn-out colds--I want to nip it in the bud with much rest.
