Matthieu No Turn of the Screw, huh? Also, miss you.

Bram Miss you too, man! How's school?

Not at that level, but I still enjoyed James' pyschological intrigues quite a bit.

Matthieu School's okay. Working through some difficulties at the moment (emotional, thesis-related). I read this a long time ago, but remember very little of it. Perhaps I should give it another chance.

How's Israel?

Bram Ah, the thesis...I remember those days: locked up in Firestone for hours on end. When I'd hit a block I used to wander through the fiction stacks, gazing at all the books I wished I was reading at that moment. Somehow this was reinvigorating.

Israel is always interesting; I could write up quite a bit on my time here, but I'll save it for a full-on, post-thesis catch-up session. It's definitely been a rewarding experience studying over here, learning cross-cultural medicine as the default.

Matthieu Yeah! Oh man, it's so easy to get lost in the bowels of that place (all those wonderful German books several flights down)... Later on, walking along Prospect and smelling the weed billowing out of the Terrace windows...

That sounds fascinating, and I would love to catch up. I have so much to tell you.
