Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I sympathize with your dilemma. Our move to Paris was motivated by many things, among them my interest in and admiration for Pierre Bourdieu-- and then he went and died on me.
Great sadness.
For many years we spent a fortune on plane tickets to Ohio and Florida keeping our relationship with aging parents alive, and feeding the heart with the sweetness of their presence.
Time and the inevitable end has removed that problem.
That said, I revel in the freedom to cruise the Bibliotec Nationale and find so much that just aint on anyone's radar screen over there.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
