Oh! I missed a day. OK, this falling darkness in the afternoon isn't so cute anymore. A friend wrote me this email: "This darkness is unworkable." My thought yesterday was, "I need a butler and a fireplace to get through this." But instead I made my own cambric-- half Lady Grey tea, half almond milk, a few drops of vanilla extract. That revived me somewhat, as in a Victorian novel when one finds oneself wandering the moor all night before seeing a lit window in a lone house and being taken in by one's long-lost cousins. One is welcomed in and given a warm cup of tea, only to realize that tea assuages 60% of one's angst. Maybe 70%.
(I should write tea blurbs for the J. Peterman catalog.)
And here is some art inspired by Jane Eyre by the artist Paula Rego.
