From my diary

I’ve just completed another 50 pages of the unpublished English translation of the 13th century Arabic writer Ibn Abi Usaibia’s dictionary of medical writers.  Thankfully he has now reached Galen.  It was the material on Galen that led me to look at this work.  It’s much more interesting than the material which has preceded it.

The sun is still shining, but I keep wanting to go to sleep.  The winter sun doesn’t give as much light, it seems.
