b/g - in the library


HELLO DARLING FRIENDS! I have been granted the right to speak the english language again! And I'm back with my family, finally recovering instead of doing more work and speaking in more Japanese.

It was an amazing, difficult, terrifying and worthwhile trip. My brain at the end was chock full. I'm still fatigued, and everyone in my little los angeles family is sick so I'll probably be sick in a day or so as a result, but I'm home!!

*clings to you all* and as soon as I get rested up I'll actually do things like respond to comments and email! promise

It's over, and I'm home.... (Summer Memories Part I)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you and I were sitting face to face and I
asked you, "What are the most important lessons you've learned these
last 11 months?", what would you tell me? I think you need this type of
experience: an intense and leisurely conversation with a good listener you
trust -- someone who will encourage you to articulate the major
developments in your life since your last birthday. Here are some other
queries I'd pose: 1. How have you changed? 2. What long-term process
needs to come to a climax? 3. What "school" are you ready to graduate

Funny  I should get a horoscope like this since I'm coming off one of the biggest lessons I've had in years.  I don't want to forget things about this experience, from the people to the place to everything.  I will write a little bit of this in Japanese in a second, but I've spent the last 9 weeks struggling to express myself in Japanese so I'm switching.  Of course, at the moment it's difficult to think in English too, so I'm assuming my wording will be a bit weird.  You're warned.
