not dead yet

to quote Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

It is pretty quiet around here. Alice is with my mother, sailing in the mornings and organizing the neighborhood children in the afternoons. Aerin is enjoying having no commitments for a week or two, and sleeping and reading and (at the moment) watching Brannagh's Hamlet. Which she wants to chase with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Al is kibbitzing on Hamlet. I am going back to my room to work on a new piece, because I have to take something to my class on Friday.
