so it's october? you wouldn't believe how time warps between the fog and rain. seriously.
a few thoughts (because i don't have my memory stick that has all my inspirationalish blogs)
-there are these flowers here that sparkle. seriously. little red and white five petaled beauties that just shine brilliantly from their little speckles of gold sparkle.
-on a day that felt so heavy with missing home, i walked into my english evening class to find a student wearing a wichita, ks SURVIVOR t-shirt, complete with tornado graphic and punny sayings. i almost hugged him.
-today, in my second round of trips through managua, i found the grassy corners around the huge, congested round-about were occupied by cows. lots of them.
-yes, i did just spend 30 cords on three packs of gushers...i had been craving them, thinking about asking someone to send them to me, and there they were, tucked into a basket. it was meant to be (even though i kicked myself for spending that much)
-a taxi driver asked if i were french yesterday, but i said no, im from the states...his reply: oh, i assumed you were European because you recognized the Psalm on the radio...americans are more distracted in that aspect, right? i didn't know what to say
-i'm facing my biggest achilles heel: fear - and its exhilirating and exhausting all at once
-i am actually enjoying the rain...?
-the states economic status has me a bit worried...
-who IS this sarah palin lady? one look at her photo in newsweek with the American flag and the following story made me a little nauseated.
-nica time no longer means late to me...simply means im realizing i dont have the time to touch on all the hurts and tears i see
-i LOVE writing letters. seriously.
-the start of something new and beautiful has begun...and i am so excited yet terrified of its end or the discovery of some major flaw.
-i'm really upset to be missing fall. like, hurts my heart sad.
-never realized how much i was attuned to my smell surroundings..i wish so badly i had brought some body spray and scented candles.
-i heart sleeping.
