this is the present. in texas. in dallas. at home.
but there is so much to catch up on.
and you are leaving next thursday for mali for two years for the peace corps.
that’s right. more on that later. right now the spotlight is on the past.
things must be written now or in two years. in two years you highly doubt you’ll be motivated. you already have trouble writing about things that happened two months ago.
in any case, everything is edited. written. and everything is posted.
so to get right to where we last left off, the day you left france. a total of sixteen things to read. make a cup of tea and take your time.
now you have no more backlog. just another thing scratched off your long to do list.
from this point on, it is the present.
