I finally finished the "Transformative minority" and submitted it to an Orientalist journal in Prague. It took a long time, but gave me a certain sense of competence. Even if I feel that it is only a modest beginning of much more exciting and advanced things. Clearly, there is a qualitative jump in my writings; not only are they in English, but also they are some 60% longer than they used to be. On the other hand, the paper is to celebrate as the first publication issued from my project.
I finished Peter Webb, and read Stetkevych's Zephyrs of Najd.
