The Old Reaper

Dec. 10, 2015

Dear Hildie:

I’m reading Lacquer’s book on the treatment of the body after death. Very well-written. I’m not sure he got the Aztecs right, though.

I’m finished with all my scanning and revising and now I’m ready to sit down and start something else, if I can get the energy. God, it’s so depressing right now—So many people I know are either dying or have already died. I feel like the old reaper’s knocking.

Things are quiet at the office now as I wait to see what happens this week and the next.

Take care, old thing.
