10:26 am: Later start than usual this morning; resuming with the taxonomic variation section of Carr (1999).
10:51: Time for a quick restroom break; as I proceed through this article, I am quickly learning how important it is for me to establish the adult conditions of features, in addition to the juvenile characters.
10:59: Back to the task at hand, but not before setting out the bust of Darwin on my desk.
12:07: Lunch.
1:11: Maxilla, resumed.
1:28: Maxillary characters done, now on with the nasal!
1:51: Now, the lacrimal!
1:56: This is a huge, exhuasting task; I have to take a break from this for a while; pausing to read from Charles Darwin’s Autobiographies.
