at long last

I am making pilgramage to the wrong side of the river.

This thanksgiving in celebration of a week free of classes I choose Memphis (the real Memphis is on the west side of its river).

I really can't express how glad I am to travel again and be in a place of minimal distraction. Lately I've felt so caked with responsabilities and protocols that I haven't had time to be human. I still do all those human things but all I can think about is whether skipping lunch on a particular Tuesday will give me enough time to finish a project and the like.

I desparately want time. Time to think. Time to mourn. Time to play. Time to build up. Time to break down. Time to grow. Time to be thankful.

Hope you have a great time!

Life is rough... but don't think it gets easier after you graduate. It's just different busy. I wish I had time for lots of things also. So far I've only averaged 2 hrs a week with the Master Doug Young. I've learned a lot, but that's not nearly enough time a week. Hopefully next week...

We have a "wrong side of the river" up here in Boston. We refer to it as "The People's Republic of Cambridge." (only slightly kidding :)
