We just go back from Mexico last night. Here is the story. I’ve been working on this too long. I have to go wake up my wife and kids from the well-deserved nap.

waiting for the bus
dreaming of my bed back home
pillows are waiting
eyes give her away
she’s lost in the crowd today
scared of a wrong turn
Denver to Houston
highways through nameless places
just to say goodbye
Haiku #39: Passport
two hundred countries
but fifty years left to live
how does it all fit?
Fired Up & Ready To Go
I just slept for a good ten hours. Although I don’t feel completely at 100% yet, I am ready to get back to work. I know I was at work for the past five weeks, but it felt less like work at the orphanage as time went on. Now that I’m back in site, I have many volunteers to contact about several different ongoing projects. At the same time, I am going to start looking for a new house and working on paperwork for the Peace Corps. It really is going to be a busy couple of weeks.
I think I fell a day behind on my Memory Challenge during my travels. I’ll update twice today to catch up. I just spent half an hour fixing all the links in the Challenge. All the memories are now available to read. Here is Day Eleven:
Field Strip to Casablanca
I just went on a field trip to Casablanca with 15 of the best artists in the orphanage. It was a great experience. We were fed a fantastic lunch (FOR FREE!!!). Then, after walking around the campus of the country club, the kids were given an endless supply of good paper and paint. They painted for two full hours. It is incredible how many people want to give to these kids. This is at least the fourth group that I’ve seen interacting with the kids in a big way–and I have only been here for four weeks. They come from a tough background, but they have an incredible upbringing in this place.
Another day, another memory:
Day Seven: Lightening in the Cemetery
Peace Corps Introvert!!!
I will try to do some more writing updates soon. I am currently way too busy with unpacking and lesson planning. I hope this is a good replacement for now.
Peace Corps Introvert: Episode 7
I definitely think I’m going to turn this into a regular thing.
