It will probably take more than one post; but it's worthwhile writing towards now. And something great. Hopefully we will get all cought up to and take the writing somewhere new and improved. Always improved.
So since we visited CpH and Studio; a highlight, much has indeed happened. Firstly, I still dream about the biodynamic organic leek. It was incredible. I try to tell people that it was by far the best leek I ever had; but it's hard for people to fathom because they obviously do not have many memorable reference points.
Secondly, I went to Cambridge in June. I didn't punt but we did attend the May Ball at Emmanuel College. This was an odd and frightfully cold event. Ultimately I found Cambridge to have a weird class dynamic in which the students are revered and us mere mortals disappear behind the looking glass.
The highlight at this odd ball most certainly was chatting to one of the C Team, a weird Oxford Club which crashes the Cambridge Mayball. He was jittery and emphatically not enjoying himself. Enjoyment, however, was not the point, as he pointed out. The point was to break in. That was the point. Which to me sort of summed up my impression of the Cambridge students who also seemed to not really be enjoying anything other than the mere fact that they had managed to get in.
That experience alone is probably what spiraled me into an existential quest for joy and purpose. Because the point is not to have a blog, but to write because we enjoy it.
And so here we are; back.
