It was difficult to hold onto time and the days passed quickly and regularly. I was again a stranger and without employ. Disappointingly, my hours were spent far too seldom at the library and far too often, at the computer. I was not lonely but occasionally a little lost.
Every now and again a miraculous acquaintance would make me glad with some sort of missive. Heaven knows how I ever earned such friends. And for my part I communicated feverishly and inexpertly, in all directions, or was otherwise rather quiet. Jobless, the period could only be described as a sort of interim. I set to the acquisition of the new tongue with fervent application and signed up for calculus.
It was a period in which we formulated desires, and insisted upon them, for the sake of a path. The bank echoed loudly and the trains carried on coming in.
