As I was out kayaking on this gorgeous evening after several days of fog, I passed a friend on the shore who called out, "We wouldn't mind if you took a day off, you know!"
I'm taking her at her word.
As you all know, the news dumps in the last couple of days have kept me writing until the sun came up. But while I am finally going to bed on those late nights, the fishermen's days are just starting....

Thank you to your friend for her wise words. Do please get more regular rest. Lack of good sleep is one of the first things that causes brain deterioration, and we so dearly need your wisdom and knowledge right now. But not at the expense of your health. While I miss your words when you take the evening off, I am comforted in knowing you are getting some much deserved sleep and will be fresher and wiser for it the next day. Sweet dreams.
Good, Dr Heather, we’ve worried about your late nights. Take more days off, we do so rely on your knowledge and insights. May you have a sound full night’s sleep!
