Welcome to Currently!

If you came here looking for marine navigation tips or current affairs reporting, I’m afraid you’ll have to keep searching. The name Currently was actually inspired by this passage from The Finishing School by Gail Godwin…

“There are two kinds of people…One kind, you can tell just by looking at them at what point they congealed into their final selves. It might be a very nice self, but you know you can expect no more surprises from it. Whereas, the other kind keeps moving, changing. With these people, you can never say, “X stops here,” or “Now I know all there is to know about Y.” That doesn’t mean they’re unstable. Ah, no, far from it. They are fluid. They keep moving forward and making new trysts with life, and the motion of it keeps them young. In my opinion, they are the only people who are still alive.”

I first saw this in Parade Magazine, when Connie Schultz used it to launch her Life in the Middle Ages blog in July 2013. I thought about it again when I finally decided to start this blog, which I suppose is my own little version of a new tryst with life. The notion of being fluid, moving forward and always changing reminded me of a flowing river, and the name Currently seemed to perfectly capture the whole idea. I hope you enjoy these dispatches from my journey. I look forward to sharing observations on news, books, people and life in general. (Come to think of it, there may be some navigation tips and current affairs after all.) Stay tuned…
