Not much writing was done this week, to be honest. It has been a stressful and difficult two months for me at the Agency at which I handle far too much Paperwork. Bureaucracy has a tendency to stultify creativity because answers to the problems seem to be rote in their approach and broad view solutions are discouraged in favor of get X done now. Yet, I can only blame my employment just a touch in this case… I spent the majority of the week debating the virtues of Pride & Prejudice with Paimona, considering Emma again, and re-reading A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.
Classics are a wonderful and beautiful way through which to analyze the world of that time at which the pieces were written. So, in other words, Paimona is all about the Regency era in England at the current time. In addition, I’ve been reading The Vikings: A History by Robert Ferguson, a wonderful book that ties archeological, linguistic evidence, and history together. Yes, it is a bit streamlined and simple, but it is a great piece.
As always, thank you greatly for your viewership and all comments made.
