Jane apologized for pushing me into political analysis which I was not yet ready for from 2009 to 2013. Now I am raking it in and still stumble but the acceptance also of politics as a survivalist and sustaining strategy for political reformers is emerging.
My literature review was written on a rush. I wanted to finish badly in February 2013. Now I understand why time was not on my side then. It has still a lot to teach about humility and succumbing to my data.
Now I am reading again. I am writing sentences on paper, on small notes, on stationery, whenever a rush of grand thoughts envelop my thinking. my colleagues are finishing up. Nicole now has a PhD and her thesis in our library at Murdoch. I will get there in time. I have just taken a longer route to writing the reality of my PhD. I am thankful to be the author of this reality.
