Thoughts Past Midnight

This was going to be an e-mail to the Bagel Lady (the Woman in America) but I decided to make it a blog post instead (me being short on suitable subjects for blog posts, you understand.)

The appeal of bagels I understand, the appeal of waffles I don’t. I bought some recently. They’re so inconsequential. Is it the maple syrup I’m missing?

I feel so sorry for Ukrainians, caught up as they are in this transparent tug o’ war game between the US and EU on one side, and the Russians on the other. Good luck, Ukraine. I hope you come out of this still with a sense of national identity and with the wounds of division healed.

And now I’m going to bed.
