Still struggling with the war, obviously.
But now I'm trying to go back to a previous place--and move forward. I have five weeks off from my technology (software job). I'm using it to go back and do excavation of a previous life. That was where I did historical research and was an "all but dissertation" graduate student. I'm reading, writing, trying to get back to where I can do work on this. I'll feel very sad if I come to my old age or my death and have nothing more than a software manual to show for it. Even a photoshop software manual. . . .
