Breathe. And maybe pour yourself a glass of wine. Or several.

Nik said...

Yeah, it's all good. I did most of the list. And now it's written down so it's practically done. But I'll try the glass of wine too.

Hi: I just came across your essay, "An Unkindness of Ravens," and wanted to let you know how mesmerizing it was for me. It's a story that will stay with me for a long time. Thank you.
