It is 02:47 AM. I have just returned from a disco. Tomorrow morning, I will attend a performance of The Wind in The Willows. Tomorrow afternoon, I will attend a family barbecue. There might be time to blog in the evening. However, it is all one. This is life and Poul Anderson's works are above all a celebration of life - the struggle for survival, the work that creates wealth, the enjoyment of experience, the hope of transcendence, the maintenance of order, the preservation of freedom, the exploration of the universe and the battle against entropy.
