Sometimes when I study my mind explodes in a frenzy of clicks; linking together what I read with what I've always considered underlying truths.  It makes me think that maybe, just maybe, my views of the world do have some relevance.  I just need to hear other people articulate them, validate them, and it propels me into a new realm where I can see a lifetime of connections and feel that fantastic momentum of unfolding enlightenment.  Beyond a simple lightbulb, my realization is a crack of lightening.  The thoughts branch and arc and link, feeding each other, sizzling with excitement.  And in an instant they fade.  Striving to ensure the permanence of such ephemeral revelations, my notebook becomes a spiderweb of scrawls and scratches as I try to pin down the wisps of interlinking thoughts.  My only hope is to have a pen on hand at that exact moment.  Today I succeeded.

I can't believe it has been a month since I have had the time to properly write.  Not ok.  I have sat down so many times to chat about life, the universe, and everything only to get pulled away to work on something for school or my internship or whatever.  I don't want to only write token bits and pieces so I find myself needing some real time to write and it just hasn't been happening.

Since I last wrote, I....

Dear Everyone:

I don't know how to explain just how busy it's been since I landed back in London.  I promise that after Wednesday I will be able to get back to writing.  Oh, how I've missed it!!!  I would say I've missed you too but I saw a lot of you in person last fortnight (is that a phrase?  I'm going to go with it) and that was awesome!  For those of you I haven't seen in a long while (and everyone else too) , please write me an email/postcard/letter/message in a bottle and tell me all your news!
