This round Earth.
Early morning still-dark here where I’m writing, Friday evening dark for some who might see this in a moment, already bright day for others elsewhere yet… We’re all “here” and it’s “now”, but also “there”.
The story? Rest of chapter four is here. There. Yours now. Or later!
Saturday is looking much better than Fridays now that school is back in session. Hope everyone who’s on that calendar got off to a good start and wishing all a successful and enriching academic year!
Herewith, the first part of chapter 4.
It’s the first day of a new month. A new academic year is getting underway. The missing suitcase turned up, allowing for installments to resume. With sincere apologies for the interruption: chapter 3!
Note to self. In future, when traveling by plane, keep chargers with devices, in carry-on. You will thereby avoid – when checked luggage goes missing – staring teary-eyed at the out-of-juice laptop with the story in it, scouring the web for a replacement charger to no avail, and feeling like an ass. A jet-lagged ass. Bad combination.
Installment 4 is Chapter 2. How square. 😉
By a fun and unplanned coincidence, the third installment is going up today, the third of August. It brings you to the end of chapter 1.
The second installment is ready whenever you are!
It begins just below this: * ∞ * ∞ * ∞ *
