Today at 5 p.m. was the first time I’ve left my building since Wednesday.

I did go down to the lobby on Friday to get the mail—Susie did it for us on Thursday.

On Friday, we launched a H-U-G-E project that we’ve been working on for a year.  I’ll have much more to say about it on the Hop Studios blog on Monday, but for now, you can check out and marvel at all that it is.

Why did we go out today?  Well,m some friends were doing a gi-normous run to IKEA to buy new stuff for their new apartment, and we thought it would be fun to go shopping there without any particular need th fill—which means no particular piece of expensive furniture to bicker or hem and haw over.

We ate at the Ikea cafe, which is so cheap and so good—OK, not THAT good, but really cheap.

My sister Virginia’s coming into town real soon, to stay for a couple days.  I’m looking forward to it.

Did I mention how nice it is to be blogging again?

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
