“Inevitably our words convey mere fragments of the reality on which our experience fed——then at least with a shadow of what in the depths of our soul we know to be untranslatable: the pure emotion of an encounter, the wonder of a discovery, that fleeting moment of silence before the word is produced that will remain in the memory like the traces of a dream that time will never completely erase.” —José Saramago

  D. and I just came home from a very successful weekend trip with friends, but I couldn’t stop thinking about what I had waiting for me in the freeze.

And it is so not forgiving. Controlled heat pipes paired with […]
