A week off church duties. Not entirely idle, but they say a change is as good as a rest. I’ll be going back to the old game, writing an article for a festschrift, and vetting a contribution to a symposium of essays on nineteenth-century Hispanic studies. Spent the morning browsing books that I haven’t looked at for at least five years, including one handsome half-calf volume of correspondence, warm and solid to the touch. Bliss!
Walk p.m. with BH in frosty bright sunshine. A good day.
