So I realized that one of the ideas that I have always had trouble with is categories. In fact back in the day after a first degree in literature, I thought Library Science, as it used to be known, might be a perfect follow up field. My discovery that this field is not so much about books as it is about the ability to classify led to some subconscious reactions that apparently made me physically ill enough that I had to withdraw from the program–who knew it was was the first of many such reversals?
Therefore (I do love simple logic), I am changing this blog’s name, if I can manage WordPress’s gadgets to Translating/Making. The truth is I’ve been a translator my whole life and saying that I Translate X-language and MakeY-objects is far too limiting.
Here’s hoping my future posts prove that to all of you!
