For those wondering where to go next:

A brother asked a hermit, "Tell me something good that I may do it and live by it." The hermit said, "God alone knows what is good. But I have heard that one of the hermits asked the great Nesteros, who was a friend of Antony, 'What good work shall I do?' and he replied, 'Surely all works please God equally? Scriptures says, Abraham was hospitable and God was with him; Elijah loved quiet and God was with him; David was humble and God was with him.' So whatever you find you are drawn to in following God's will, do it and let your heart be at peace."
--From The Desert Fathers: Sayings of the Early Christian Monks, trans. Benedicta Ward. De Vitis Patrum, sive Verba Seniorum, Liber V, Pelagius and John, 11.

I'm fine--K was going to try to make it up for my birthday, but he won't be able to come until the weekend. That's all.
