Our carrier included a special yellow bag with our mail delivery yesterday. The bag is sitting out by the mailbox now waiting for pickup.
Wonderful! My parents and I were active in several APAs in the 1970s and 1980s. General interest APAs, science-fiction oriented APAs, and a long-lived music APA called ALPS (Amateur Long-Playing Society). In those days, we had a mimeograph that was in frequent use, and we would type on wax stencils. The unmistakable smell of correction fluid was familiar. Later, we found photocopying convenient, but it felt like cheating for a long time.

"Reality is optional." I think of this as akin to the "bargaining phase" in the stages of dying, prolonged.

Just had a severe reminder of this in my life. Story is too long to assay here, but my god, desire is a mind-altering phenomenon. Took me by surprise despite my dry cognition about it. And the knowledge doesn't make the desire less potent. Powerful stuff.
