Went dumpster diving and retrieved a cushy sofa and sturdy coffee table. Props to Nick, my upstairs neighbor and garbage shopper par excellence, for the discovery.
I'm really looking forward to this break for the next couple weeks in Cork. I need to chew the intellectual cud for a bit; let things marinate and distill. I anticipate returning to Amsterdam with renewed vitality. Your prayers for my sake are well appreciated.
I don't intend to post again until I get back around the end of the first week in January.
