misunderstood cosmologies

Last night we enjoyed the wonder of a much simplified household. The visitors all departed, and reported later that they had a pleasant and safe drive home. I watched re-runs of a science fiction show whose cosmology I never quite understand. I looked at a self-published book on the Bishop's Gambit in the King's Gambit at, but decided that thirty six dollars is far too much to pay for a strategy I would never employ. I priced self-publishing costs for my own book at, but decided that their system costs too much for the thing I have in mind. I've always liked their company, though, because they are transparent about what they will and cannot do.

I sold a copy of my chess poem book on eBay to a college professor in rural Georgia, who averred his amusement at the silly ad copy I employed. A friend shared with me by e mail a two minute Mp3 snippet of a really good song he arranged. A long-standing friend wrote me an e mail about a situation change going on in his life. Things change so often. I must convince him to move to the Dallas area if the threatened change becomes real. I must also mail out the CD of "Vibrating Electric Fields" to the fellow with the euphonious eBay handle "noisefactorysound".

Last night we ate tilapia and capers, with salad. Tonight I eat alone, as my wife must attend a meeting. The morning air features a cool nip right now, but by afternoon warmth returns. I should begin reading a new novel. I like the restfulness of hard work.
