Hello from D.C.!

As many of you know, we recently moved to Washington, D.C.

This change has meant that I have possessed precious little time for writing, but as is often the way, I tend to have more ideas about what I’d like to write when I have little or no time to do it. Unquestionably, there are many phenomenons like this in life.

It reminds me most of those days in college when I had some end of the Spring semester assignment to finish, and the weather outside had never looked more beautiful. Peering out a window, I could see all of my friends delightfully throwing a frisbee. Meanwhile I was left to slave away at some terrible essay about Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey.

I recognize there is some irony in the example I have provided, but I think you know what I mean. Basically what I am saying is that I enjoy writing, and I look forward now to having more time to get back to it– just as long as it’s not about one of Jane Austen’s minor works (or even her major ones for the that matter).

Moving to a new city always brings new thoughts to me. On top of that, moving from the capital city of Peru to the capital of the U.S. triggers tremendous food for thought. Rather than treat each subject on my mind rather inadequately in this post, I will try to address some of my thoughts more thoroughly in their own posts over the coming weeks. Of course, a lot of what I write will seem random too. But that’s the nature of how things work. So I hope you will stay tuned.

  1. Good to hear that the Blog is still alive and kicking, and will be kicking more in the coming months. Looking forward to hearing how work’s shaping up. Needless to say, Lima is still grey with no sign of summer/spring, but most importantly your plants are still alive!! David

  2. David, it’s great to hear from you. Sorry that Lima is so Scottish, but I supposed you are used to it.

    Also thanks for keeping our plants alive! We bought some new ones here that we are doing our best to keep alive. It was nice to have a reminder that some of our plants survived despite the carnage in Lima. The trick is finding the ones that see it as a competition for you not to kill them.
