Serendipitous

Or, how I love it when a plan comes together.

Sometimes, things just work out for the better and the pieces fall into place, through simple good fortune. Such was my week as a non-hermit.

Battles in outer space

Or, more precisely, out of space.

As I recently mentioned, I’ve given up on trying to read via an e-reader (in my case, a Kindle). That leaves me in an untenable position, however.

Okay, relax, this isn’t going to be one of those tear-jerkers about my broken heart (it’s actually doing pretty okay these days). But it is one of many tears.
