I saw a list today of everything that’s happened in the US and the world in the last three weeks and it’s done a lot to explain my general feeling of malaise. Today: the attack in Barcelona. I admit — I turned off the news after a while this time and watched screwball comedies from the 1940s instead. I don’t hurt any less for Barcelona than for any of the other places. I just am running out of ways to deal.

Barcelona, we mourn for you.

If so, might it be as an Egyptologist? Fellow fan Rebecca spotted this image on the Smithsonian Channel’s program “Secrets,” in an episode about the ten plagues of Egypt.

Don’t know about you but I’d go digging with Richard Armitage any time. Even in the hot desert!

There’s a nice picture to start my day
