"The mortality among literary friendships is high. Writers tend to be bad risks as friends -- probably for much the same reasons that they are bad matrimonial risks. They save the best parts of themselves for their work."
F. Scott Fitzgerald
The first real summer day in Seattle today. The temperature reached the low seventies for the first time. I drove over to Sammamish to teach my Othello class. Very enjoyable. I actually enjoyed the whole day. The Mariners even won, of all things. Such a nice day deserved mention around the world in ECHSDOC.
