What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time & time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?

Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest & the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.

Philip Larkin, The Less Decieved 1955

Apparently, days are for cleaning the bathroom & the kitchen, burning every decent Bob Dylan cd for little Dan before he heads out, eating Italian & drinking wine at Vitales, a barn party out in the country & visiting the family.

By the way, cleaning is quite cathartic, I can understand why Mark likes it so much.

It was a good run for the Tigers, the best year that I've watched in my lifetime maybe next year. Christie was complaining that I haven't blogged recently, so you have her to blame for this one.

Thanks Christie. Clean is cool when you think of the alternative. It's shaping up to be a fine day.

I love the opening of the blog - what is a day for? In my mind it is to pack in everything possible and then some.
