I have a lot of tab-closing to do, and various updates, but just a few bits for now - I need to wind down and get some sleep.
Had an idyllic day today in Tel Aviv, the first day I have really had to myself for what seems like an impossibly long time. Beautiful walk along the boardwalk (sunburn!). A swim in a gorgeous 50m saltwater pool! Then a great talk on my beloved Kafka aphorisms at the university by Paul North and dinner on an outside terrace in highly congenial company at Suzanna's.
One special link: the obituary for Brent's father.
