Everything takes time. The planned two-day reviews turned out to be week work. Two factors cause this mismatch. First, after two months travel, I am not long at the top of the game. Picking up takes time. Second, long travel also erodes my writing ability. Writing, as any other skills, needs practice. Once you stop, it is hard to resume. I must settle down and write daily: it is my trade.
