Back from the first day of school. I’m not dead yet, so I guess it really couldn’t have been that bad. And, in truth, it wasn’t at all. It did take a little adjusting, but two hours of tv tonight was enough to ease out any of the wrinkles.

We’ve begun Bless Me, Ultima. I’m generally not into “ethnic” writing. Perhaps that doesn’t make sense, but I just think we have other cultures shoved down our throats too often. Now I sound like a raving nationalist. I would simply rather read something philosophical than cultural. For whatever reason, I don’t enjoy literature that is built nearly entirely upon explaining another ethnic group. Perhaps, of course, Bless Me, Ultima will not be like this at all. I get the sense it will be, though. We shall see.

Speaking of this, I’ve got to read a couple chapters of that tonight. I might decide to read this novel… “quickly.” By which I mean if I get bored I’ll sorta skim ahead and hope it gets interesting. I’m ruining my attention span, I fear.
