Last week, a man with a cycle-like contraption turned up at my apartment block. He was sharpening knives. Sharp knives are excellent. I paid him 20 pesos (roughly 50 Australian cents or US$0.40) for each of 2 small knives and 30 pesos for each of 4 larger knives. They are very sharp now indeed. A simple joy, but pure.

Dear SW,

Yes, sharp knives are indeed a wonder as well as a simple pleasure in life. When one experiences a sharp knife, one has a most cursory feeling that all is well in the world.

Whatever you do, do not, and I repeat, do not let D. use the sharp knives!
