1) I want to thank all of you who have been reassuring about our decision to go this weekend and all of you who have expressed your good wishes for my family and Mark's side of it in specific. I really value your support and (particularly, for reasons I don't want to go into here and now) your reassurance. Thank you. Very, very much.

2) I'm absolutely and non-sarcastically sure that it is a coincidence that the things I packed for comfort reading are all by Minnesotans. Still: Teckla, Brothers in Arms, The Secret Country, and Growing Up Weightless. Strange, that. (I picked those particular volumes of Brust and Bujold because that's where I am in my rereading of those two series, not because they're any more favorite than Orca and Cetaganda.)

(In my head, I now hear pameladean's inflections when I read the dialog she's written. It's very like having her read me a bedtime story. I mentally snuggle into the covers and relax. I never was put to sleep by bedtime stories, so that part isn't a problem. My poor Aunt Doris would try to get me to read to put me to sleep. Hah.)

Take care. Hug your old people if you can.
