The PhD Quilt

at a time when i'm comfortable with the writing comes the prospect of recrafting the theoretical framework of the study. from tenure security to enabling and good governance to the politics of reform. i am being asked to focus so as to help in finetuning the writing. but in my mind, i see not one big whole but connections and common spaces between and among circles, and the challenge right now is how to weave these common spaces into one.  it's like making a quilt. each piece is a patchwork with a story. but each story blends in with a universal theme.  the universal theme in my mind is still a work in progress and the patchworks have yet to be sewn.
