The title is misleading. I wrote a much longer draft of this post with more actual news before tragedy struck. Some unfortunate combination of keystrokes led to obliteration of said draft. I’m afraid I don’t have the energy to recreate it, but here are the highlights: trees (magnolia, cherry, and crabapple), gardening plans, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and Jorge Luis Borges (he was a librarian, y’know).
This weekend I’m going to see this.
