Since I last wrote, I’ve finished chapter five and I’m halfway through chapter six. Things are moving along quite well. I’m fully engaged in rewriting my thesis. If things turn out the way I hope, then Peacemaking will read as a fiction narrative (though the events are non-fiction). If things go poorly, then it will suck, and I’m okay with that. In other news, my daughter asked me if we could pay our mortgage in gerbils. I said, “Yeah, I think that’s a great idea,” which, for the record, I do.
