Today is one of those days where I feel a bit lot like one of those ancient gadgets they used on ships to stay on course. Obviously I know next to nothing about ships. But I have this image of an elaborate and beautiful wooden box with a glass window revealing various complicated looking dials inside and a couple of handles and screws on all the outsides that need to be adjusted steadily and with great care to hold the most delicate compass needle in one of the dials in place.
It requires enormous concentration and one lapse will send the whole ship rolling to one side and there are crashing noises and bells going off and stuff like that.

Needless to say that I am not doing a good job here and so I am just glad I didn't have to save the world today because I was just too preoccupied with being miserable all day.

While totally miraculously, the lilac is about to flower. Just like that.
