Discouraged by the (effective) loss of a vital appendage, I retreated from the world, surrendering my once active routine for a sort of lifestyle that was, as it were, perpetually ready-for-bed. For the better part of the summer, I remained confined to a dark corner of the house, determined to ...Read Full Post »
