The days go by too quickly, the nights go by too slow

Not true. The nights go by quickly too, and I am always sooo happy to see my lovely comforting bed. I combat the hibernation urge by leaving the blind up on one window, something I'd never have believed I'd do, given my determined efforts to blackout every bedroom I've ever been in. Still not insomniac, in spite of age; still preferring the half-remembered dreams that occupy my sleeps and wakes, to the grey dull light of this warm winter.

Found a webpage listing Toronto bookstores with a thanks to the informant who keeps the list up to date. It's very useful: tells me where all the bookstores I half-recall used to be. I'm not sure Abbey Books- which is now located in Paris, France- even made it into the new millennium, and Atticus has been gone from the other side of the street for over five years. It's Bakka now, moved from the Queen St address given for it some time ago. (Oh, and here's the wiki article listing all the moves. I remember it at all of those locales, including the first: which I suppose I should, given that it didn't move from the first Queen St place until after I came back from Japan.)
