Re: [BKARTS] no longer central to anything?



Ah, I thought I was the only one.  If I were 120 instead of 34, then running
after my 3-year-old while carrying my 3-month-old would be a problem.  On
the other hand, if I were a nun, I wouldn't have the children to run after!

Both Classics and bookbinding require a lot of the same personality traits,
so I'm not surprised there are several of us about.  All that attention to
detail, respect for the historical tradition, and sheer bloody-minded hard
work I learned at Berkeley finally has an outlet.

(And Signa, not everyone thinks it's admirable.  Many people think it's
intensely boring!)
