We’ve returned from honeymooning, and I will blog about that shortly.  For now, I’m reading through some Stevenson:

“It is in vain to seek for consistency or expect clear and stable views in a medium so perturbed and fleeting.  This is no cabinet science, in which things are tested to a scruple; we theorise with a pistol to our head; we are confronted with a new set of conditions on which we have not only to pass a judgment, but to take action, before the hour is at an end.  And we cannot even regard ourselves as a constant; in this flux of things, our identity itself seems in a perpetual variation; and not infrequently we find our own disguise the strangest in the masquerade.”

— from Robert Louis Stevenson, “Crabbed Age and Youth”
