Part 4 coming soon to a blog near you
I've been trying to write Part 4 of the "mind is a difficult thing to change" series (see right sidebar for links to the earlier parts), and it's been slow going, much slower than the others. I'm pretty sure it's because the subject is the Vietnam War.
I've been impressed for some time by how much emotional power that era still carries, and how much confusion and controversy it continues to cause. The unusually laborious process of trying to write something about my own reaction to it as a teenager and young adult has driven the point home to me even further. So it's a lot easier to write limericks about Clocky, or reminiscences about curfews and dress codes in the 60s.
Oh, excuses, excuses! I'm pretty sure I'm going to have it done within the next couple of days, and I'm also pretty sure I'd better not wait till I'm totally satisfied with it to post it, or I'll never do so.
