To tell the truth, I haven’t done much in the way of languages recently. I’ve been working. And it’s amazing how much time and energy work consumes.
I suppose most people know that. I needn’t spell it out. But I’ve been fortunate enough not to have had to work much these past 5 years.
Some might be shocked by that. However, the ancients Greeks (or was it Romans?) regarded it as selfish to work, since such people are unable to contribute to the community.
