I bumped into charming Tom Chinn at the All-Local Farmers' Market yesterday. He was reluctant to be photographed, saying he'd just rolled out of bed and tossed something on. I thought he looked marvelous, perfectly attired for Saturday morning errands--and my admiration increases this morning as I loll about on my plush new mattress, an aptly named "Heavenly Bed." Indeed, at this moment, just being dressed and out at all on a weekend morning strikes me as the height of ambition! I believe I will stay put and finish reading Crossing the Heart of Africa, a fascinating account of the rather ambitious Ewart Grogan, who walked across Africa in the early 1900s.
