The good news is, son Tim is coming home from Montreal. The Lovely L has worked hard at getting his room in order. After a month he plans to move down the road a piece to Bean-town (that is, for those of you from far away places, Boston, USA). Tim is an artist and one of the few truly cool people I know. Meanwhile, we remain here in relatively unexciting Portland, Maine.

Co-worker Max showed me an Easter greeting card he'd received from his girlfriend, who is Japanese. There are four Japanese characters on this card, which Max had to struggle to translate. The words essentially mean, "Happy Easter," I suppose, but Max's literal translation was quite beautiful: "Honorable restoration-to-life day!" Beautiful, no?
