In with his letter was a clipping from the (Wash) Post --- op ed about old-fashioned letter writing. Its springboard was the recent recovery of Hillary Clinton's college letters to a high school friend. There was a little ha-ha about those ("Since Xmas vacation, I've gone through three and a half metamorphoses"), some nostalgia for handwritten AND dot-matrix-printed epistles, and then at the end "Who knows why Hillary described herself as wearing 'a pair of dirty denim bell-bottoms, a never-ironed work shirt and a beautiful purple felt hat with a polka-dotted scarf streaming off it' or what she meant when she called herself a 'compassionate misanthrope.'" Who knows? I know. You know?
I have some thoughts about hangovers I may decide to share, if I get it together to get them together. (I can hear your clammoring; patience, all.)
Time to go to the office now, already. And it feels as if I've barely been home.
