I planned out most of this "block" of posts as I was in America experiencing all that I have just written down. I expected to have to write "around ten posts", but I don't think I really internalized what I was asking of myself. It certainly never occurred to me that I would still be working on it so many months later, and if it had I don't know if I would have gone through with it. And that's for the best, I think. Now that I am through with it, at long last, I'm very proud of what I've accomplished here. On the trip I wrote down some (very few, really) simple notes to remind myself of what to write, and I consulted these notes from the start (Even in the Introduction you can see how I'm trying to set all the pieces up.) to the end. And even in the end, I think it stayed pretty true to my original idea.
The point being, I have too wild an imagination, and it leads me through life like a wild horse trying to kick me off. I hope you've enjoyed some of this story.
