Today: Partly cloudy. High near 60.
    The first day back at classes wasn’t so bad…

Tonight: Cloudy to rain. Lows in the mid 40s.
    Granted, I hadn’t done any reading.

Quote of the day:
“The artist is extremely lucky who is presented with the worst possible
ordeal which will not actually kill him. At that point, he’s in business.
Beethoven’s deafness, Goya’s deafness, Milton’s blindness, that kind of
thing.” — John Berryman
