It was a thoroughly awful day today, long and difficult. There have been a lot of reasons to be "down" (not a few of them on this blog, as it turns out). I actually got myself a little bit of "comfort food" on the way home this evening, and then looking at it lost my appetite – that’s the sort of day it has been.
Then, out of the blue, I got an e-mail note that a kind reader had made a donation using the button on the left bar. Then I got a phone call via my WIFI internet phone from my editor who had with sharp-eyes found a really tricky typo, thus demonstrating that the system really works. Then, well, a couple other small things.
Not world-changing things perhaps, but in their own moments helpful.
