Lyle and the others were all occupied in the fields today. The latter crops are ready for harvest, those that remain standing after the driving rains.
I was excused for the day. I went back into the east end at the prompting of an impulse or impression, say what you will.
The once crowded streets and thoroughfares are now less so. I passed by the marketplaces where there was much activity. At least at present they do not require the mark for any transaction. I wonder if Moglen is aware of this. Or is it a stratagem on their part?
I stopped by my walled courtyard. The vision returned.
This may be the time. I went in search of Lyle.
