mission accomplished. for real.

I opened the file and wrote five sentences that I did not like so I deleted them and wrote fifteen more in their place. I think this counts as back on the horse. tomorrow I have to crack a book. the aim is to get from inquiètude to oscillation to metonymy. I've actually already done the oscillation part but need to go back to inquiètude to show why they can be understood as the same sort of motion. from oscillation to metonymy is a little step.

and then it will be time to open The Making of Americans again, although I don't have as much time to talk about it as I thought I would have. that's ok, I think.

this is what the back stretch is like, isn't it? for every ten yards you run, they move the finish line nine yards further away.

it could be worse. they could be moving it fifteen yards.

So now you too are using sports metaphors! LOL -- ; 0

It's a guy thing ya know.. (I am teasing you) --

I must must must read about this oscillation to metonymy from inquie'tude. Really. Again, I envy that you get time and space (due to paying for it I know) to read about and write about these things. I know, one can do it on one's own, and I do sometimes but-- how nice!

It sounds great! And, fifteen lines after deleting five is that much closer to the ten yard line and -- a touchdown!

i am learning that the back stretch not only sucks, that they keep moving the yardage sticks, & that it's more lt-down than not.

~however~ i still believe that the payoff comes later in reflection.
