Dear Friends and readers and haters and lurkers:
I’ve decided to take the morning off to reflect upon the past 48 hours and the ensuing pit in my stomach. A mega-dose of exercise is needed and needed right away, and probably a good deal of puppy-snuggling and a cooking project too. I promise I’ll be back this afternoon with the advice column, but for now, I just need to sweat for a couple hours. I hope you all have a wonderful day. If you are in Portland, look at the sky! Pretty blue and with some sunshine.
