It makes libraries and Good Will and the internet massive treasure troves of inexpensive culture.

One of my cacti may not have made it, after a session without enough light and water. Now I let some rain over-water my crown of thorns. I must work on resuming my expert succulent plant care, which some might call benign and effective semi-neglect.

I'm pressed for time, but not for words. Words I have.
