4. February is The Month of Letters. I like the idea but it's so not going to happen here. I handwrite almost slower than I type, which is very slow indeed, and tears of computer use (ETA: a typo, but let it stand for truth's sake) has killed the internal editor that can compose fluently as I go along. Longhand notes from me now require drafts to make sure I've said what I meant to in the space provided.
