This trip to Jamaica has been like a mini-sabbatical to work on my paper. Every morning we head into Lucea, and Amanda goes to the clinic. I take a 5 minute walk down the road to the parish library, check my email and so on, and then sit down to work on the paper. I’ve got 2-5 hours straight to just work. To make myself write. If I need a short break, I look out the window and see the ocean. I was worried that this trip would really interfere with my ability to work on the paper, but for the most part, it has been a blessing.
It has been an interesting adjustment not having continuous internet access. On that note, my internet time is up. More later.
