By the time I find them, mysteriously, my phone has gone missing. While I’m looking for the phone, it rings—it’s my friend, also my board president. Then the sheep make a hul- labaloo about something so I walk down to the paddock, but it is just a kind of sheep party with baaing, while the border collie cheers from the sidelines. I feed the sheep alfalfa, come in, and sit down to write. Then emails—a friend has cancer, someone wants a bio, a friend who’s a physi- cist has cool things to say about koans, my daughter opens a google hangout from Tokyo and wants to talk about Jane Austen and also new uses of Ngram Viewer. every time A mysterious beast captures your attention.
