 down with dry towels and to be fussed over but his heart was still beating
 as if he were still in flight or in hot pursuit. Or both.


O youth, O longing, O the moon, O the snow, O the use of proclitic apostrophe!

A well told tale. Don't we all shy away from the door in our half-frozen fur. Thank you, Robert.
