20 – 25 Febrero 2017 Featuring: My jolly self and a very friendly cabin kitten 20 Febrero 2017 Cabañas-Cabins We have most recently arrived on the border of Brazil after driving all night and spending the morning touring a Jesuite Mission (like zombies cause bus-sleep=no-sleep). I must admit though: playing Chess at 3 a.m. … Continue reading Iguazu or Bust
01 Febrero 2017 (date started and date of occurrence) A little girl child. Sitting with her family in the office for Argentinian Visas, she looked irretrievably bored.

Featured Image Starring: The Ants of the UAP Prayer Garden and my lunch (including the ant-covered pea in the foreground) 19 Febrero 2017 My Mama told me once that we are “human beings, not human doings.” That in and of itself is indeed something to chew on as you go throughout your day, but I’d … Continue reading BE: Six-legged Analogies
7 Octubre 2016 The List I’m starting a new type of post that I’ll put up once in a while called “The List.” It will include all sorts of random things that I’ve thought of/done/found/whatever during my Argentinian Allocation that weren’t significant enough to post full stories about, but have sentences of explanation.

24 de Octubre, 2016 I said the real, the raw, did I not? Here goes. Today was awful. Of course one must see the best in it, but since there’s plenty of bad, let’s just dive into reality. I woke up for class. But really, I didn’t. Because my fibromyalgia decided to act up today … Continue reading The Real. The Raw. The Broken.

I don’t have much to say – I think I psyched myself out for them a little too much and they may have been a teensy bit of a let-down. But I LOVE my teachers.
