Another lovely, clear summer day — 12°, high humidity, very high pollen count, and no breezes, my mile in 9:34. Morning Office, fruit breakfast, and settling in to spend as much of the day reading as my eyes and attention span will permit. That turned out to be a good morning of steady reading, helped by an interesting manuscript. In the afternoon, my attention was more variable. On the whole, though, a good day and adequately productive. Margaret made another vegan delight for dinner, and The Crown continued.
