  • I began this yesterday evening.

    Somehow, between tweaking these photographs, watching a video rerun of the BBC miniseries based on Le Carré's "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy", fretting over my wife's boss losing his position, an unwelcome event with possibly grim prospects for Ruth's own job, and feeling irritated because, at my own work, the HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) machine broke down meaning I was unable to measure the muscle Coenzyme Q10 level for ten patients that need that number, I ran out of words.

  • Photographs (once again) from Forest Park, St. Louis. November 29, 2012.
