I've managed to catch myself a nasty little bug, so postings on Midsummer, Hate Mail, and other topics will have to wait a few more days.
In the mean time, here's a quote I enjoyed today:
"Work is the true elixir of life. The busiest man is the happiest man. Excellence in any art or profession is attained only by hard and persistent work. Never believe that you are perfect. When a man imagines, even after years of striving, that he has attained perfection, his decline begins."
--Sir Theodore Martin
