Ah, the joy of country living – using a laptop in the reflected light from the books burning in the middle in the living room floor, listening to the demonic laughter of PG&E workers as they drive by to taunt us before heading off to repair the power lines in other neighborhoods – never ours, never ours.
The global headquarters are still dark. I’ll be answering calls and e-mails as quickly as possible. If you sent me an e-mail last week, you can ignore the messages you’re getting about “delayed delivery” – I got the messages.
If you have the necessities of life (a working Internet connection) and some of the luxuries (heat, water), treasure them for a moment. Also, mail me some. It’s quiet and dark out here.
