Absent breakfast at Tiffany’s, also lunch and dinner, also all solid foods for two days…

breakfast at tiffany'sHello, poppets. I have been unwell. Nothing serious—a hell-bender of a migraine the likes of which I haven’t seen (or felt) in years. It bothers me that I haven’t been answering your most recent comments.

Elyes: One of these days you’ll have to explain The Tyger to me, what I get is something about grappling with life and transcendent awareness…

Galivantta: I think yours is my favorite quote of the week, “…family history is embedded in the lay of the land…”

Heather: and then there was this from you, “…may I never lose sight of that instinctive hope…”

Marcheline: I have to say I like your style, and I’d definitely go with the robin’s egg blue refrigerator.


George: besides making me look up “perspicacity” at least twice a year, thank you for your insight, your ability to speak clearly about a tough subject, and your innate goodness.

Things will be quiet around here for the next few days, be well.

    Ouch. Get better. I get them too. Rarely. Red wine is my trigger, more’s the pity.

      As I knock on menopause’s door I think (sometimes) that breathing is a trigger.

        Possibly. But I find that it’s the stuff I really like that does it for me — red wine, chardonnay, beer. I’m not sure I’d include breathing in LA air in that category (or DC air, either!)

      I just sent the esteemed neurologist I see for the migraines an email basically trying to bribe him to get me into the office early by offering to cater his next book club meeting!
