I'm home. I'm writing, thinking, walking. I'm having dinner with old friends and babysitting new friends. I'm refilling the well, you could say. This video makes me think of us. All of us. We'll need to rethink a few things, he says. No kidding. Like community.

More soon.

    sounds like you are having a great time re-connecting with your community, your homeland, new friends and old. from what my friends at home say, it sounds like you’re having some amazing summer weather over there too!
