"The really unforgivable acts are committed by calm men in beautiful green silk rooms, who deal death wholesale, by the shipload, without lust, or anger, or desire, or any redeeming emotion to excuse them but cold fear of some pretended future. But the crimes they hope to prevent in that future are imaginary. The ones they commit in the present -- are real."
-- Aral Vorkosigan, _Shards of Honor_ -- Lois McMaster Bujold

Te lucis ante terminum
Rerum creator poscimus
Ut solita clementia
Sit nobis in praestodia


I remember singing that in the choir at school.

A quiet day. Well, busy but quiet. No unexpected meetings or tasks (thank heavens). A pleasant time rereading Shards of Honor at various points throughout the day.

Currently trimming 500 words down to 300. Oh, my precious, precious words! How can I spare a single one of you?

I think I'll dream of undertows tonight, and quiet conversations where both people know what they're talking about but never say a word to make it clear, and blinding sun on pale cherry blossoms in an endless perfect spring day which rings like struck crystal; just as lovely, just as empty.
