Agonizing over rewriting my profile here to reflect recent developments in my life. I can testify to the fact that agonizing over the more minute details of one's life can successfully distract one from the enormous elephants hanging about the premises. Also, since my hands are feeling quite improved, I'm making teensy steps toward finally getting the shop and my laundry room organized. Not too quickly, mind you, as having these rooms remain in a state of disarray is my stubborn Norwegian-Lutheran hedge against death. Hey, we don't have Purgatory so we need something.
