At what I perceive to be this point in time, I have confidence that Hardy’s words convey, in part, messages of conciliation, which, in the belief that my confidence is justified, cause me to experience what appears to be warmth in those regions sometimes described as the cockles of one’s heart. 

 

In other words, we’re ok, Bub—at least until you’ve read the above.
