I apologize for earlier. I’ve been sick, as I told you, and it made me irritable, perhaps irrational. Probably it would be best for me to take some time away, as that will also give you some space. I’m aware of your stresses—to an extent—and don’t want to add to them.
Passed notes briefly with Derek, who says we can stay at his new place come Jan. 17-20th, if you’re still interested.
