According to the National Institute of Health, the average resting heart rate: for children 10 years and older, and adults (including seniors) is 60 - 100 beats per minute. for well-trained athletes is 40 - 60 beats per minute.

Because I had a consult with my sleep doctor last week, I happen to know what my heart rate is: 53.

I became aware something was watching me. It was the feral cat I feed. I was at Krug and Lancaster, four blocks from where I feed it. And it was farther up Krug than I was. How big is this cat's range?

My mother grew up in Mulgrave, Nova Scotia, on the Strait of Canso. The region was more culturally distinct back then: people still spoke Gaelic, for example. One of the practices now long lost was the trick of luring fish in close to shore after dusk by confusing the fish with human vocalizations.

So did something else.
