Just the Facts
I am not upbeat today, and everything that I start to write is a downer. Everybody has had enough of that. So I'll be brief and simply report.
Yesterday, Ili and I went to a restaurant we go to only on occasion and had a wonderful spicy lentil soup and some potato cakes with a very fancy name. We sat at the corner of the bar looking out onto the half-empty, light-filled dining room. It was good.
We came home and lay upon the couch and watched "The Collection," a series on Amazon. It is beautiful. Almost every shot is a delight. The story is o.k., too.
Then we watched the first ever episode of "Southern Charm" so I would know what that fellow is writing about. The Leisure Class. I have known them, the southern aristocracy, and they are a bit monstrous which is the theme of the show, I think. If only.
We went for sushi early.
Then we watched more of "The Collection."
And this morning, I must return to the factory, for I am not of the Leisure Class myself. I have learned to cope with them, but not fully. I have wasted my life working.
But there I go morbidly opining. I will keep my word and only report today.
The morning is cold and getting colder. The sun is brilliant. I will not be taking pictures today.
