Back home, re-connecting with my cats, and trying to absorb all the implications of return to regular life
“The man in the wilderness said to me,
‘How many strawberries grow in the sea?’
I answered him as I thought good —
‘As many red herrings as grow in the wood.'”
–Squirrel Nutkin to Old Brown the owl, via Beatrix Potter.
Though in this picture I’ve got a snail instead of a strawberry, but I assure you it’s a land snail and not a sea snail.
Also, I’m not at all sure the fish is a herring, though parts of it are certainly red.
