“It is the nightly custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. If you could keep awake (but of course you can’t) you would see your own mother doing this, and you would find it quite interesting to watch her. It is quite like tidying up drawers.”
Such is head-cleaning day.. .
From there, she waxes rhapsodic on themes as diverse as Mormons, Jane Austen, the Stupefaction of Spirit Day at her college, Down the Rabbit Hole, and the perennial puzzle: “Are We Gods or Sacrifices?” Plus there’s art — campus photos from her cell phone — for you few (you know who you are!) who tend to get bogged down in too many words. 🙂
