For reasons I don't know and cannot explain-- no unusual quantities of tea or coffee yesterday, no excitements planned for the day, no troublesome chore casting its shadow, who knows. Am quite sure, however, that eventually, one of these mornings, if this shortening of my night sleeping hours continues, I will drift off into a 'nap' at 1100 and not awaken until 1400. Eh. Warmer still this morning-- almost 50 degrees F. now, and 'almost' 80 in the late afternoon, so say the weather mages. Today's the feast of the Dominican martyr Saint Peter of Verona (Introibo, CE, Wiki); Holy Mass will be streamed from Saint-Eugène in Paris at the usual hour.

This does not mean that all Muslim immigrants are terrorists but that, as the state does not do its job against it, [terrorism and] illegal immigration, we just have to be wary of all of them.
