I awoke later than usual, then tended to office and paper work that had been ignored for some time. I also wrapped a large parcel of books, only to discover that there were two separate orders, so it had to be opened and rewrapped as two individual orders. It was my fault for being inattentive. While tending to errands in town, I was repeatedly amazed by the kindness of people in general. Hobbling along with two canes, whenever I approached a closed door, someone would rush to open it for me, one man even left his place in the queue to help me, even though I am not helpless.
