Splash du Jour: Friday

I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind's door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.
-- Joan Didion, Slouching Towards Bethlehem --

Have a great Friday!

Isn't it, though?
That Joan -- she ain't no slouch!
