But sometimes it's hard to know what comes first. After a couple of weeks away I'm back at work trying to finish a book I've been poking at for four or five years. I'm on the countdown now and I can see light at the end of the you know what. In the meantime, I have made this commitment to a blog. I'm not sure whether the commitment is to me or to you or maybe it's to both - all? - of us. And today is Monday and I haven't done my homework for my Icelandic class tonight. So what comes first? I think a nap.
