Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
And moody Madness laughing wild
Amid severest woe.
-from Thomas Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College"
Battered and Bruised
Upper right arm. Lower left arm. Left shoulder. Right thigh. Left wrist. On my back, at the bottom of my ribcase. I've got huge bruises in each of these locations, and I cannot remember doing anything to get them. Maybe I've been sleepwalking.
