Revisiting Disinflection # 12 edition (final): November 2011

Disinflection revisited. November 2011.

And suddenly, we had come to the last edition. We were both happy to have mostly made the deadlines, with only a few technical hiccups. We were also happy to assign this to the past, to the drawer, for future perusals.

So where did we find ourselves? Each at our own renewed and newly appreciated place of understanding, and both about to crash into parallel  lives that were completely removed from what we had imagined at the beginning of the year. An understatement.

What is Disinflection, then, but little more than a small birthmark on the lip of our time.
