I thought it was supposed to be hard to look at any fixed text in a dream, but I spent a lot of time this morning dreaming I was reading a book. I remember the dedication began "First, I'd like to thank my graphologist..." In the middle of the book the author was describing some sort of alphabet he'd invented made out of the shapes of famous author's heads. A pencil-sketch of a bespectacled James Joyce was among them.

Wait, no, it was a repreduction of this picture of David Hilbert I saw, not Joyce.

Had another Grand Day Out. Highlights included olive garden, esperanto meeting thingy, shopping at target. I bought a hat and some knit gloves. I am very happy with the hat. It is sort of a mellow low-key muddy green color. The gloves, I'll see about. I hope they shrink a bit if I wash them, for they are somewhat large, though they advertise being one-size-fits-all. I'm actually surprised, because I thought my fingers were freakishly long.
