A Christmas-package pile on my right and piles to pack, including art supplies, bound for India on my left. A small snow storm soon to arrive in upstate NY and in 9 days 98-degree tropics. (I can't tell you how happy that will make me.) I'm figuring out guitar chords for "The Hokey Pokey" and other classics to teach kids, crossing fingers that we'll come back to Naz with some Malayalam songs to share.
May this be the first of many heartfelt, enticing, and photo-filled blogs to come -- stunningly written pieces that keep our readers running back for more. Given the sheer amazing-ness of my travel companions, I have no doubt it will be.
This is the first blog entry I've ever written in my otherwise very eventful life. Hopefully it's working.
