I did not do the park loop today, however, I did climb up the stairs (two flights) twice with a 25lb box of cat litter each time. Does that count? I climbed other stairs as well. And I did about 3 or 4 minutes of yoga. And I read a paragraph of French. And that was hard.

I have tagged a few passages and thought I might as well use this venue as a "commonplace book" ...
"For people who live on expectations, to face up to their realisation is something of an ordeal. Expectations are the most perilous form of dream, and when dreams do realize themselves it is in the waking world: the difference is subtly but often painfully felt."
"...she had had it borne in on her that wherever anyone is they are costing somebody something, and that the cost must be met."
"The autumnal moment, such as occurs in all seasons, the darknening sea with its little commas of foam offered no limits to the loneliness she could feel, even when she was feeling quite resigned."
|Cooder in one of her chairs.|
"A face at a window for no reason is a face that should have a thumb in its mouth: there is something only-childish about it. Or, if the face is not foolish, it is threatening—blotted white by the darkness inside the room it suggests a malignant indoor power."
"... one kind of loneliness hammers in another..."
"There seemed to be some way she did not know of by which people managed to understand each other."
