new term

…and so evil term begins at evil college and I am depressed. The place seems empty, there are missing faces and faces I sorely miss, yet the inanity of the place remains. And I wonder why I am back…

But I have not left Captain Toomey and the boys behind. I am reaching a climax of a story idea concerning Marguerite that came to me in Aix-en-Provence last summer; and this year while sitting in my favourite bar under the maple tree I stumbled upon an idea that ties up all the loose ends. When one writes one deliberately leaves in loose ends or the narrative equivalent of  an Ha-ha, to force you to stumble, to force you to think.

And perhaps with lighter (famous last words) duties this year I may see the end of this draft by Christmas.
