A DRAMATIC PERSONAL RESOLUTION, AND IT IS NOT EVEN NEW YEAR'S EVE

For longer than I can recall, I have been in crisis mode, listening to hours of cable news every day, reading endless commentary, writing end-of-civilization posts for this blog, and generally being miserable.  I have not observed that this has made the world a better place, but it has seemed unavoidable.  On Saturday, I will go to Paris for two and a half weeks.  I have decided to go wild and have fun.  Nothing too outré.  I shall shop at the market, cook in my little kitchen, sit in the café, attend early music concerts, perhaps take a bus ride, like that.  Don't condemn me.  I have my limits.

Sounds like a great vacation program.

I certainly don't blame you. When my ex partner and her son left over 5 years ago, I gave them my TV set because theirs had been broken during the 2010 earthquake. I haven't missed it at all. I'm fairly sure that I will never buy another.

In September 2001, I rendezvoused with my sister and brother-in-law in Palermo. The sun was shining, the food was excellent, I was reading, wholly cut off from news. Then my sister told me I should turn on the TV. I got to see the second jet hit the TradeTowers. The rest of the vacation was spent learning to read news in Italian

Don't cook all the snails in the back yard. Or at least, not at once. Hope you have a great time.
