When I publish this, I may include the commentaries as a bonus. But a story that needs to be explained is no story.
The notes are a different journey, a different story; my story as author. My relationship to the place and the time and the people.
I wrote this chapter today. I have a buffer of three or four more chapters, but there are still another ten or so to go. Maybe 20 000 words all told, before we reach the end.
Thanks for letting me publish this in chunks. If I had had to do it in one gasp, I would never have made it this far.
