For the record I have received an offer for the shop. I will negotiate, but intend to accept. This is the desired outcome, and I supposed that I would be more roused by the fact that I actually am (notwithstanding the fact that nothing is final and much red tape must be processed). I’m tempted to say I’m numbed by the news, but it’s not a precise term. I’m terribly weary, and have taken the news wearily. Oh good, etc.
Perhaps all that will come.
