Tackling New Old Responsibilities
When one does the very familiar in a new context, it can cause a very weird pause. “I know this, but I must not get ahead of myself”, you say to yourself. There is that word assume, and don’t let the kids over pronounce the first three letters. Next Monday I am in that paradox, in a larger fishing port than old Georgetown. I used to like that phrase, ‘may you live in interesting times’ until I found out its actually a Chinese curse. Hard stop with that one. Hoping for a non-Chinese version of it.
