As I slowly begin to accept the realities of my mundane American life, I have also created a new blog to document some of it (mainly my intellectual development). The number of readers and comments I have had over the past 8 months has been surprising and gratifying. You were the ones who motivated me to write the way I did and to stay (reasonably) faithful to my blogging goals. I don’t want to lose you all now. Don’t let go!
