The kid, who watches us when we�re not looking, is playing with the toys of self-importance this morning. She spent a few minutes putting a capital letter at the top of each page in a blank book, then ages trying to think of people and numbers to put in it. She excitedly took possession of my old key chain, then returned to ask whether I had any keys I don�t need. And just now, she found an old identity badge from my job to hang about her neck.

I read, write, drink tea, and hope for no bells.

The cat lies in the sun.
