The long habit of living indisposeth us for dying.
~ Thomas Browne, Religio Medici
The long habit of working, on the other hand, indisposeth us for living. And so in order to smother any secret longing for the rope and dagger, I am taking a vacation. If you are one of the dozen or so regular visitors to this page and would care to know, I’ll return the week of August 11th. If you are, instead, an irregular visitor – well, there are things you can take for that, you know.
