I ended the day richer in heart than I had begun. I spoke, you answered. A new swan arrived and it spreads its wings and lifts its neck in the most magical fashion, and a stack of books, and I spent some time with Robin. New jewels, new chances, and a new nook that I'm crafting for myself. I should say today will be grand, particularly if I can manage my caffeination to the precise point of mild, controlled euphoria.
