A month in Placencia turns into six weeks. Babysitting a naughty Burmese cat. Finishing Belize 5, editing and mapping by day, kite flying when the wind is up, preparing for the next phase of my existence. 44! Studying before bed through digitally recorded university courses. Last month: "The Story of Human Languages" with Linguistics professor John McWhorter, an expert in Creole languages. Am currently going through Robert Solomon's "No Excuses - Existentialism and the Meaning of Life". Last night: Camus.
My life is very exciting, isn't it?
On Sunday I will leave this languid excuse for paradise for Caye Caulker, the last stop on my book research trip. Missed it in December owing to the gout. It's all better now. I will also take kite to board and write a story about it, if I don't die in the process. After that, Several islands in Mexico and then, the big bird to a home I knew before the internet even existed.
This is all. Also, Dr. Strauss says I don't have to write "Progress Report" in the title of my blog anymore.
