No question, just a thank you for taking the time to answer here, devotedly, as you seem to do everything. AND to wish you and yours a wonderful, joyful new year!
BTW, finished Murakami's (what a writer) The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle--anything but pedestrian! Found myself talking to the author out loud near ch. 39, ? saying "NOOO!" (Toru was again in the well, seemingly vanquished...) You know a book's good when you're yelling to yourself, I think.
THANK YOU for being such a rare doctor and overall cool person and of course, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
