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.
