It looks like I may be on an enforced break here. The nineteenth-century house by the sea where we are spending the summer seems to be a very resolutely nineteenth-century house. It is none too crazy about us having phone service and has rejected the high-speed internet outright. Either this will get resolved or else I will spend the summer idly reading books and maybe writing a few.
Apologies to anyone who has dropped by and found me not at home.
