Damn!!! Alright I have been writing for almost 9 straight hours! Who does this? In the current assignment we’re supposed to engage the senses of the reader. The reader should be able to see, touch, taste and smell from the narrative.  That’s an oversimplification of the professor’s instructions but I’m sure most of you get the point.

As I’m writing, I keep going off on tangents. It seems easy enough but my mind keeps doing battle with competing thoughts. A one point an overwhelming, almost rabid desire to hunt down some chocolate chip cookies hijacked my thought processes.

Don’t ask. Yes I did and it was not a pretty sight.

To those of you who have written me words of encouragement, thank you sooooo much! Sistah Fair you are truly a gift from the ancestors. Charles I think we are starting for form a fraternal writing bond that might be long lasting. What do you think?

Anyway, I needed a second to vent and this is usually where I do it. It’s funny when you think about it. I have spent more than 9 hours today writing and then, in order to vent, I go on my blog and write some more. Insane huh?

I’m almost finished with this assignment. As soon as I finish I will post it as an attachment to the next blog “Initiatory Process VII.” Oh yeah, I’ll post an English and Spanish version as usual.

Two more months of the class. I’ve completed each assignment thus far. Will I make it all the way through? We’ll see.

Con cada ejercicio puedo ver que mi vocabulario español esta creciendo. Aunque he sido hablar español desde 20 años esta bien retar yo mismo de nuevo. Poco a poco se va lejos! ¿Verdad?
