Dear Writing Group:
No me he querido extender sobre el tema semanal porque hay tanto que decir, ¡y tanto! Yo esta semana tengo 4,000 palabras remal escritas ¡y es tanto! es decir, ¡son tantas! Algo con qué trabajar dan y esto ¡ya es tanto!
My grandfather made a miscalculation in early 1929 and it caused problems. We have been more conservative since. Me puedo extender sobre este tema si quieren. The point is that after a certain moment I decided it was necessary to take some risks and see what would happen.
I can afford it since I am in an expanding field — which I chose for that reason.
I remember the moment in which I decided to take risks. I did not know how far that decision would take me in this direction. Had I known, I would not have done it. It is hard to believe that I survived in any form at all, given all the risks I took. The fact is that I only survived because I had chosen, sabiéndolo y eligiéndolo por ello, an expanding field.
This is the advantage I have, and I know it once again since not everyone in the Writing Group is in an expanding field.
Nonetheless I think it is important to rally unless one quits. I can say this, rally once again for the field, because I have tenure. It is harder if you don’t, I know.
