"What refuge is there for the victim who is possessed with the feeling that there are a thousand new books he ought to read, while life is only long enough for him to read a hundred?"
- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894)
In the future, Cambridge Considered will no longer be updated on a regular schedule. I have a lot of projects going on in my life at the moment -- for example, I started a new job a few months ago, and I moved to a new apartment last week. While I'm not deadline-averse in general (which is good, since I plan to go to graduate school sometime in the next few years), I'm realizing more and more that at this point in my life, I don't want to have deadlines for what I do outside of work. This is why I chose the above quote, by a Cambridge poet and essayist whose work I haven't yet featured on the blog. I am by no means shutting Cambridge Considered down, but there are just so many things I want to be doing with my time!
Coming up sometime in the future are the remaining Very Brief History of Cambridge posts, and a handful of other posts I have in mind. As always, I welcome questions about Cambridge history or suggestions for future posts. Additionally, please contact me if you are interested in appearing as a guest blogger on this site, or having me appear on yours.
The students are back, soon local apples will start pouring in from the Berkshires (and closer), and it's time for some new adventures.
