Marxist doesn't mean what I think you think it means

St. Basil's



Lots of reading to do and the deeper I get into it, the more I realize that Marx was far, far more important in the last 150 years than I previously thought. And as I read more Russians, the more I get intrigued by Russia. And Moscow. I can hear it calling me.

We had people from my department over today, from Germany, Bangladesh, and Thai. Yoko said the most profound thing about England: I don't feel like I want to go home, but if I left, I wouldn't want to come back.

A lot of the people at the school here are taking breaks from lucrative work they do in their home countries to study. They will get PhDs and then return to even more lucrative work in home countries.

Yoko and I (with Naomi and baby no. 2) are without a home. When we finish here, we will have no default place to go. Wherever we choose will have to be someplace new. This is more distressing to me than it should be as moving again is still about 4 years off. But not having a home is starting to bother me.
