We ate microwave popcorn and watched Baz Luhrmann's "Australia" tonight. I was reminded of west Texas. I'm re-reading Persuasion. I like to look at pictures from the book "Birds of Costa Rica". I dropped a pawn needlessly in postal chess today, after moving without calculating. The moon was gorgeous tonight, not quite full, not quite dry. Saturday we hope to see the Denison art festival. I must catch up with this and with that.
