Home, but yet to function.

I had a four hour nap, which means I now have a four-hour-nap hangover. Fuzz for brains.

There is so much to write. MPS just closed school for Friday, too, so it looks like there’s not much else to do over the next few days. I’ll try to get all caught up. Notes to self:

–where oh where did Fraley go?
–finished next week’s book club book
–R.I.P. Jean S., or so much for HIPPA
–R’s fate in the Peace Corp
–Life in the Peace Corp
–St. Kitts/Nevis restaurant reviews (good stories here!)

I’ll have to look through the last week to see what else I mentioned.

What are you hearing? Thanks so much for the stuff you’ve been e-mailing. We’re gonna be back in business at a regular rhythm next week.

    Just wanted to share this with everyone from last year via the huffington post:


    While the article is long, it incited a lot of reflection in myself. I thought in particular that you Cindy, and Kathryn would really enjoy it.

  2. You’re right. I liked that very much.

  3. Thank you, Lorax. That piece may be gaining a following. I read it several months ago when someone else referenced it. It is beautiful and sad and hopeful.

  4. Randy in Richmond says:

    On the article provided by Lomax-
    Gene Weingarten is an excellant writer. I started reading other articles by him and regardless of the subject he easily held my interest. But as to this particular stunt my description is Candid Camera in a tuxedo. Weingarten simply took the old maxim ‘stop and smell the roses’ and applied a question-mark to it. It makes for great reading and as Lorax says will make us think, but I don’t believe the event indicts those people who passed by or didn’t contribute.

  5. Randy, that was extraordinary! You took my exact sentiment and summed it perfectly. In particular, I really liked this:

    “Weingarten simply took the old maxim ’stop and smell the roses’ and applied a question-mark to it.”

    Bravo, sir. Well done.
