I just received a copy of Anita Hammer's PhD thesis: Weaving Plots: Frames of theatre and ritual in simultaneous interactive digital communication. It's there on my desk, a solid reminder of the fact that I, too, will soon have to finish. I tried to imagine life beyond the defense today. I couldn't. Too much of what I used to like doing have been on hold too long waiting for me to finish, I hardly remember them.
I'll read Anita's work, and while I do, I'll try to remember that there is a life after the defense, also because I remember how she looked after having finished: happy, energetic, relaxed and full of the laughter so characteristic of her. Thank you, Anita.
